Good morning all,
What is the solution for the drive system that gets really hot, is vents in the transmission cover the solution?

There is already cooling ventilation in the transmission cover.

The transmission does get hot.

As the engine gets hot, so does the transmission.

At full operating temperature, the transmission pulleys can get so hot, that you can not touch them.
