Being I'm no longer a dealer line tech, yes.
oil consumption, coked oil rings.
early ones blow apart balncers.
AIR pump passages in the heads pluggin up on occasion.
Had a few with silicone flaking off and plugging the rocker shafts.

conducter plates both shorting out and leaking from the connecter
front and rear sprag failures
pump leaks from attachment bolts.
shifter interlock boot leaks.
shifter failures
all in all, pretty good unit, especially compared to the junk used by other manufacters.

One thing I say from personal experience CHANGE THE FLUID @ 60k intervals. Use the MB fluid.

BTW, it would seem I might be one of the few Indys that'll working on the .6 but I'll warn you failures are expensive.
