SECTION XVI. POWER TRANSFER ASSEMBLY~
a. If an oil leak should develop, gaskets (26, fig. 4-61)
Power developed by the two engines is delivered through
the hydraulic marine gear system to the drive gear (4, fig.
and (11) can be replaced by removing the
4-61), thence to the power driven gear (32) and power
driven shaft (13). The power transfer gear is splash
lubricated with oil in the marine gear system.
b. If major repairs are needed, transfer gear
'assembly must be removed from the engine. Refer to
