I got in touch with Bachmann.
I explained to them how I had acquired the loco,
what condition it was in upon purchase,
how I had attempted to fix it,
and what I suspected the problem to be.

Their reply was,
that they see this problem with the gearbox a lot, especially with the older series of Climaxes,
and that I can send it back to them for repair, along with a money order for an amount,
and that they would look at it,
tell me what repairs it needs, and then we could go from there. 

I'm going to try this route, and I'll keep you all updated on how things progress,
because it sounds like this is a quite frequent problem,
and it might help others in getting their locomotives repaired.
