I was tightening it with the ratchet but to be honest there was no a pile of force. Maybe the gear selector was not 100% and jumped in or something. I just dropped it and it seems like it does not rotate in reverse and only one direction in forward as per the idea of the previous posts.
As for the oil I am unsure. As I said previously I had changed the oil but this happened when I dropped the lower leg the first time. Not a pile of oil but still ebough to make you wonder. Once the leg is bag in it all looks fine again.
Fingers crossed. Any other ideas on any of it?
