Pull the cover, clean cover and shims with brake cleaner , then a light coating of Permatex aviation 2 sealant, or the thinner Napa jv66b sealant, and back together it goes :wink:

To trace the source of the leak, clean and wipe dry, then spray "Foot Powder" around the suspect area. The powder will "sag" away from the leak 8) :twisted:
The shaft seal or housing O-ring are usually the culprets :wink:

Where are you located? If you are close by , I can lend you a balancer adaptor.
It really should be mandatory to list location in the profiles as to make it easier for close members to help each other out :wink: :wink:

Silicone will leak, the proper sealant is Permatex #2 aviation sealer, or Napa jv66b sealant. Use only on the cover side( or you will not like the next time it has to come off) as the gaskets will not be re-usable, and very hard to remove :shock:

The smell may have been the breaker getting hot. There are several clear connector shields, they slip with age/and or tampering causing the bare terminal to short to ground, melting the wire.
If the wire chaffed or was melted, then the wire guide tube may also have meled giving you the gearbox leak.

you need to lock the flywheel and use a breaker bar to get them off. Call me and I'll give you a quick run down on short cuts :wink:

It depends on what state you reside in :roll: In California 1974 and older applies, and as far as I know TD,s can only be registered for off road use.
