Inspection and repair on HURTH HKS A 18-292 gearbox

  • HURTH gearbox

Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox HURTH HKS A 18-292.


This client from The Netherlands came to us with this HURTH HKS A 18-292. We inspected the gearbox and performed a repair. After a succesful testrun we shipped the gearbox back to the client.

Upon arrival, the oil had been drained from the gearbox and the cardan shaft disassembled.

After the disassembly of the coupling, the oil return channel was visible. No details were found in this, but it was blown through with compressed air and brake cleaner.

Since the gearbox was already deprived of its lubricating oil on arrival, it is not possible to retrieve it or the oil level was exceeded.

Since this gearbox is equipped with a labyrinth instead of lip seals, a too high oil level can lead to leakages.
