Further testing revealed that the pinion bearings could benefit from more oil flow, so a special gate was made to redirect the flow of oil. The gate is welded in place (new castings will have the gate cast in) which directs oil being flung off of the ring gear into the oil cavity. This forces more oil into the bearings for better lubrication.
