Manual Transmissions and Transaxle High-speed Lubrication, Unbalance, and Seizure Evaluation(STABILIZED Sep 2011)
It is anticipated that this SAE Recommended Practice will be only one step in a comprehensive evaluation of the vehicle/transmission application. This document alone is not adequate “due care” to insure against high-speed seizure or other high-speed problems.
The notes printed in bold print throughout the practice convey important information about the test itself or the results and should be considered carefully.
All references to transmissions also apply to transaxles, except for the unbalance evaluation which applies only to rear-wheel-drive transmissions with propeller shaft output.
