There's rea;;y only 3 places it can leak from.

Rear oil seal.......front oil seal inside the clutch release tube, or the paper gasket

between the gearbox & bellhousing.


You did replace the plug after topping up the oil?????

Chris at BGH said my rear oil seal had gone all floppy (Quiet Ken!)

I fitted it about 2 years ago when my prop shaft let go.

It was from a local factors.

He recommends only fitting a seal from a known manufacturer.

Well ordered seals come with all 3 gonna try and attempt doing rear seal by undoing engine mounts etc and moving engine and box forward slightly then doing it through gearstick hole watch this space

They are just a little tricky removing old ones because the outer case of the seal is about 20mm deep.

Bob, stop drinking a mixture of oil and KY.

Your seal will leak a lot less then.

Was your shaft being overworked at the time when it let go?

Sorry Bob. My eyes are a bit deaf.

One thing with the rear oil seal is not to be too fussy how you remove it!!


A hooking great old screw driver and a knockometer is all you need.


Refit using a socket of the right diameter and a bit of lube (Bob Tucker) and it will slip in with a bit of persuasion.

Don't forget to grease the seal face though or it will burn on 1st use and start leaking again!!
