Apologies in advance for an Oil thread.

I'm into the transmission on the missbehaving Hornet today. One thing I noticed was all the bronze in the box was black or becoming black which I have never seen before. I thought that from past conversations this was an indication of heated oil attacking the bronze.

Is this so or am I mistaken? Has anybody else seen this?

In fairness to Redline - could this also be too much heat on the oil as the box was binding and the oil that came out after I noticed it binding was quite stinky.

If one of the forks has been hot it means it's that which is trying
to hold it in gear. Set the box up on the bench in a vise and ensure
you are getting full engagement of the gears as the cam plate is
indexed. 12 thou endfloat on an a65 layshaft is a recipe for disaster
if you are racing it. Once warmed up that will become more like 20 thou
but then iv'e only talked to Chris Vincent about these boxes so what do
i know.
