36hp Split Case Gearbox Oil Leak

Post  George&Charlie on Sat Oct 27, 2012 8:24 am

Hi guys,

The gearbox in our '58 appears to be leaking a fair bit of oil, I haven't had chance to take a proper look yet but I should get time tomorrow.
What are the most common areas that they leak from so I can try and narrow it down, I assume it'll be around the driveshafts?. If it's leaking from the split in the case will it need to be rebuilt? if that's the case can anyone recommend someone.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers
George

Can't really see that many split case gearbox experts on here scratch

Maybe try a thread on pre67.com?

It might be coming from the hockey stick in the nose cone??? The splitscreen gearbox was leaking from there... A couple of new bushes and a makeshift seal (cheers Paul) and it seems fine now...
I assume they would have a similar system...
