We were in the upper 80's with high humidity in the same month that we got snow storms :confused3::thumbdown:

I had leaky gearbox problem too. After all the regular oil leaked out I added in a bottle of STP stop lead and then grease gunned in JD Corn Head grease until just above full line. Corn Head grease solidifies quickly after melting due to gear reaction and therefore doesn't leak. I haven't had any leakage since (and didn't have to mess with replacing gaskets). Make sure you use Corn Head grease. Others won't work.
