    I have been having problems with oil coming out the primary vent hose. At first thought the primary was over filled, but after draining a substantial amount , a couple days later it would be blowing out the hose. So I did the down and dirty and removed the sprockets and found a leak around the primary drive shaft. Anybody got any fixes before I have to tera the whole thing apart?

    If it is already coming through the seal you are probably into some wrench time. Don't know of a quick way around it.

    Only way to stop a leak around a seal is to replace it. No short cuts will work here.
