A Hale LG/SG Gearbox Cover Gasket is a rubber seal that sits between the gearbox cover and the gearbox housing on a Hale LG or SG series fire pump. It helps to prevent leaks of oil and other fluids from inside the gearbox. The gasket is made of a durable rubber compound that is resistant to heat and oil, and it is typically black in color.
A failed gasket can lead to leaks of oil or other fluids from inside the gearbox, which can damage the gearbox and reduce its performance.
Here are some of the signs that a Hale LG/SG Gearbox Cover Gasket may need to be replaced:
- Oil or other fluids leaking from between the gearbox cover and the gearbox housing.
- A burnt or charred gasket.
- A torn or damaged gasket.
- A gasket that is hard or brittle.
