Trans seal

Unread post by naderwaswrong » Sun Oct 08, 2017 11:45 am

Leaking from the very end of the trans where the shift rod goes in. What is that seal called? If I was looking at the right parts, I saw one called a repair seal. Is it a seal that could get you by for now? Thanks again.

I replaced mine several times and it still leaks. I'm going to have to assume that the shaft itself is imperfect of something to that effect. Anyway, if it still leaks after you change it don't feel too bad.
