    I know another oil leak!! My drive belt broke and I did the replacement myself. I had a oil leak immediately after this work was complete. I waited for a while befor taking inner and outer primary off. After tearing it down I noticed that I put the mainshaft bearing in backwards. Bummer! I put new seals and gaskets and used red RTV. After 200 miles the leak was back not as bad but a leak. What did I do wrong?? Any help is apprciated.:(

    Thanks for the reply. I have some flourescent additive in the transmission to see if it is the source of the leak. I hope not. I will be doing the repair after trip to Mn.
