Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
The gear oil should not be cloudy at all, if its, what you are seeing is the beginning of water intrusion. The said drive has a small leak on it that needs to be resealed. The most likely issue is the propeller shaft seals, those are the ones that go first, and if the shaft has ever picked up any fishing line that only kills the seals quicker.
Did you have any further questions on the issue?
You are very welcome Trent, glad I could help. Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
It looks like you read my answer without replying back or putting through a rating for me. Please keep in mind the website did charge you to speak with me, but they will hold your money and not credit me for helping you out if no rating is put through. If you have a further question on the issue by all means please feel free to ask. If not, kindly select a rating for my service. If you have a problem with the ratings box or can not see it please let me know.
How did you end up making out?
