Recently disassembled said machine for painting and service. Removed rear
end and drained oil, refilled, painted and reinstalled. No problems with

locked up, no reverse (makes a grinding clicking noise). Other gears work,
but still a grinding clicking noise and I can see the shaft from the belt

Anyone ever take one of these things apart? Anything I should be aware of
(like things flying apart)? Didn't find any other ng to post this on so
hopefully this is the right one..
