Agreed - I'm currently having the same problem: trans fluid running out, onto the garage floor (clear - I use synthetic, thick, and smells like gear oil). I also see it dripping off the back side of the inner primary and my primary oil smells like gear oil, not primary oil.

That being the case, what is the most likely problem with the mainshaft seals? Is it necessary to pull the main drive gear to change them?

Thanks,
Gordon
