OH MAN! Wish I had seen that earlier today! I had my gear box replaced today. I wonder if they kept it so we can look at it Monday.

If your situation is the case...

Checked mine that way afterwards, too bad I didn't before the change. It has been running between 184-187 on rolling hills.

That sounds normal. Another thought, mine will normally run a little cooler and a more steady temp when the air conditioner is running unless it is very hot or climbing hills. The fan switches to high speed when the AC is running.

Good news!

The ESW paid for the gear box. I also got a chance to see it. You could see where the seal was defective. Still...I will keep the crank case vent tube in mind in case I'm told it need replacement again.
