    Drain the oil, take of the pan, clean it out, refill with fresh oil. It will cost $40.00 and is worth a try. If the pan is full of burt black stuff its the linings in the box gone. Make sure that reverse is begin engaged either externally (on the side of the box if early model) or internally (late model box) from the cable.

    There is a couple of gearbox types. The earlier model are expensive to rebuild.

    I have been quoted $1200.00 for a rebuild and I have taken the box out. Also be aware that after the box has been rebuild the endfloat for the final drive to box needs to be reset.

    Good luck.
