Water in ZA50 Gear Box

Rob Abbott /

I successfully flushed my gas tank of all rust and chemicals but, in the process, got water in my gear box. Following guidance in prior posts, I ran several cycles of oil though to flush - but am still getting foamy/milky oil coming out. Any solution to getting all moisture out short of complete disassembly? Thanks in advance.

Just pull the clutch cover and don't loose the shims. Pray with brake cleaner and reassemble

Yep. But don’t tear your og gasket! It’s the correct thickness!

Do I use flammable brake parts cleaner and, if so, do I need to get every drop out before reassembly and fill?

Good advice. I just did a complete rebuild and went though the float/end play process. Lots of fun.

It evaporates pretty well on it's own.
