English term or phrase: "Hollow shaft chambers"
"*Hollow shaft chambers* on shaft mount gearboxes shall be thouroughly packed with a suitable grease prior to installation of the speed reducer covers."

Handelt es sich um Innnenräume (Kammern?) IN Hohlwellen oder um Kammern FÜR Hohlwellen in Getrieben oder sind "shafts" hier gar keine Wellen? Auf jeden Fall verstehe ich es so, dass Hohlräume vor dem Verschliessen mit Schmierfett ausgefüllt werden sollen.
