Gear train noise is usually an indication of excessive gear backlash, chipped, pitted or burred gear teeth, or
excessive bearing wear. If a gear train noise develops, all the gears and bearings should be Inspected.
Prior to gear removal, it is advisable to line up and make a sketch indicating the position of the timing marks before
removing or replacing any of the gears in the gear train. Whenever the sealant patch bolts are removed, they should
be replaced with new sealant patch bolts.
