So next I decided to change the gear oil on this poor thing after sitting outside for ever I've been told, and about 2 gallons of water came out before any oil did.
How in the heck did the water get in! I thought the only way was through the fill hole or dipstick. Even then, 2 GALLONS! So what does this water do to the internals and should I worry about it? I'm just about to drive it for the first time. New battery, engine oil. The engine now runs and idles. She is ready to go. I got a hold of 5 gallons of Napa GL1.
Do I flush it out with some cleaner before taking off?
