Question Is it BAD when you pull the drain plug on your gear case.....

and NOTHING comes out? Not even WATER? Maybe THAT is why the drive broke?

Jon,

Funny thing is, I was going to change the oil before I went "just to be safe", but got busy, and said, "it only has one or two runs on it, it should be fine..." Next time, I will DEFINITELY check it. At least it isn't July 4th.

I would put a preasure pump on it and pump it up..... Something sounds fishy... You could have had the oil leak out the top drive shaft gasket but I would think that water would have replaced the oil........
