Preventive Maintenance

At least once after buying your boat, you should inspect the machine (below decks) and check the gearbox lube. If the whole unit looks terrible it must be cleaned, carefully inspected, Osphoed and repainted. The source of leaking water or excessive moisture must be found and treated. To inspect lube, first loosen the bottom drain plug carefully to let a small amount of oil drip out. If the oil is pasty and white it must be drained, the case cleaned out, and oil replaced. While case is empty, stick a finger in and swab around the opening inside the box housing. If you get a lot of bronze dust, it is a sign of main pinion wear and future problems. Fresh oil will prolong life. The big bronze pinion gear is intended to wear preferentially and the material makes for quiet operation.

To check normal level, locate the upper pipe plug on the side of the gearbox, remove the plug and stick a finger in. The correct level is just below the edge of the threaded hole. Use standard 90-W oil to top off.

These machines (when correctly installed and inspected occasionally) will serve you for decades of occasional use. If you use your deck machine regularly, check the oil and look in the control box more often. In frequent use, oil should be changed annually.

Any real repair work in the gearbox should be done by the Galley Maid factory or a good machine shop. Parts are available at G-M.
