Re: Huge engine oil leak over the transmission

I have never had a leaky rear main Oil seal. But the new gasket for the rear main Oil seal plate failed once not long after engine rebuild. It leaked out over top of differential housing and oil did not get on clutch/flywheel. The seal was disintegrating. I replaced it with a much superior one from ...

Re: Manual transmission issues

how much oil did it need? if it was 2 QTs or more your tranny may not recover. the easiest way to tell if the input bearing is bad is by pushing the clutch pedal down while car is idleing in neutral. if there is noise while pedal is up and it goes quiet when pedal is down, thats the inner input bear...

Re: Transmission damage; how bad is it?

losing the oil and driving causes the tranny to over heat. most likely teeth on main drive gears melted or broke off. with only a QT in tranny thats not enough. when you remove the tranny and find those symptoms it will not be fixable. should be able to salvage the synchros and thats about it
