Hey I have a question concerning my VMC40. I noticed a loud clanking sound coming from spindle so I removed cover. After removing cover, I notice that my low gear wheel control arm is vibrating pretty badly. So I took a rag and removed any dirty even though I didn’t visible see any(the low gear had no oil what so ever on it, not sure if that’s how it suppose to run but the high gear does). I turn spindle up to about 1000 rpm and even though it wasnt vibrating as badly. it still had the same issue, the sound just became inconsistent. Not sure if I can upload videos but I’ll share a photo. THANKS for any help. (Notice how clean the low gear is compared to the high gear)
