Gearbox problems - Perkins 4108

The gearbox ran out of oil on a long passage (50hrs). There is no shaft movement when power is applied. You can turn the shaft by hand, but there is clanking noise coming from the box. We are currently taking the box off for inspection. Any suggestions? Is this repairable, or are we going to need a new one. (Met/Spain)
