It was missing several of the bolts for the cover which let it run out of oil slowly. Lack of lube makes heat which ruins the heat treating on the gears.

They are the factory’s... The clamps still look completely in tact. No evidence of strike, tears, nada. And it’s BOTH sides equally. Same condition.
