Quick Fix Prevents Messy Error
We've had several gearboxes supplied from the manufacturer with a breather that is basically a pipe plug with a hole drilled in it. If a less experienced craftsman rebuilds a gearbox and switches the drain plug with the breather plug, an oil leak mess is the result. On many gearboxes, we've replaced these orifice breathers with particulate filter breathers. On gearboxes that still have the pipe plug breather, we've painted the breather plug a different color so it is easy to see. This helps ensure the plugs are in the correct locations.

Recognizing Gear Wear Modes
From the "Wear Particle Atlas":

Scuffing of gears is caused by too high a load and/or speed. Excessive heat generation breaks down the lubricant film and causes adhesion of the mating gear teeth. Roughening of the wear surfaces ensues with a subsequent increase in the wear rate. The regions of the gear teeth affected are between the pitch line and both the gear root and tip. Once initiated, scuffing usually affects each tooth on a gear, resulting in a large volume of wear debris.
