    question about gear failure?

    Has anyone ever had a failure where a piece of washer/gear in perticular in my case got stuck in an oil raceway in the lower half of the case? I have a piece stuck and can not for the life of me figure out how to get it out! Hopefully one of you verterans of the 4tech's can help! If needed I can post pics to make it a little easier!

    Have you tried compressed air?

    Yeah have tried air, tried to wedge it out, pretty much anything...im to the point I would think about trying to find a lower half of a case from someone who is parting a motor.

    How many RXTX are effected? do they cover it if it has been modified? My dealer said they are not aware of any issues but they have only sold a few TX models.
