manual gearbox transmission leak sweat

Post by tintoverano » Sat May 23, 2020 8:29 am

gave yesterday oil treatment to the gearbox and saw that it developed light leak(s)

last week a totally remembered wrong, where I saw leak stains and thought it was further to the front caused by coolant, when I put the new diff with LSD in place (and thought that I had to remove the exhaust to make it work) :D

so, it can be either of these two below, as the leak appears at the rear of the transmission:

the latter one is a big DIY, might be too big b/c of the tool required, so I hope it is the first one

right now waiting a couple of days for the leak to (re)appear

did anybody have to address such leaks?

thanks

Take it to your local indy for a price before you attempt this, dropping the back of a manual RWD box is simple and quick on a ramp. You might find they can do both for a lot less than you think....
