    I have a 76 Shovelhead that keeps blowing the tramsmission fluid out the top of the transmission at the clutch lever entry near the Kickstart.
    If anyone has an idea why this is happening, please give me a shout.
    Thank you.

    Is there a vent line nipple in the top cover? If so, is this plugged or blocked?

    TQ

    A 4 speed ratchet top shovel has a vent screw through the top, if it is plugged or missing you will build pressure and blow oil out of trans.
