    Gearbox oil.

    Hi all. I recently put some light oil in my Summit gearbox. After I put the gearbox back together I noticed that the oil was seeping through the gaps between the two halves of the gearbox casing.

    Do you think it would be worth sealing up the gearbox to keep the oil inside, thereby making it quieter?

    I was thinking of a thin smear of silicone over the seam of the box after it was screwed back together.

    Thanks.
