The green seal is fine, but there is a specific brown seal for the paralever. The green seal can be used on the Paralever (backwards), but its use is sometimes a flag that the Tech that put the box together may have built up the gearbox based on it being used for a wet driveshaft. Under that scenario the v notch at the top of the output flange would have been left open. The Paralever is dry, & this notch needs to be filled up.

Here's a photo of my gearbox after the output seal was replaced. Spot the difference.

Phosphoric acid seems to clean ok, just needs to be hosed off with water afterwards.

plastic beads?

My brother gave me his media blaster, and I have not yet bought media for it. Did you use plastic beads ? Anything I should know before buying some media ?
I'll be doing the same type of job as this.

Looking great!,
That powder coating is magic. But how do you keep the soda out of your engine and gear box when blasting? That stuff gets everywhere!

I just taped everything up you dont really blast around the carb or exhaust hole anyway and after your thru just take and blow the soda off the motor.But for the real tarnished areas the soda just dont get the job done you have to bead blast.
