    HELP PLEASE gear box? what to do?

    ok say i was leaking oil out of my gear box( i am ) what would be the best to do?, considering it's only the smallest amount, i mean had it up on the ramp's give it a good clean, nice and clean (yesterday) and today it's a little oily (doesnt leave oil where i park it) ,i only thought id look after my g,f got in it to drive it, which is once and a blue moon, and she said the gear box seemd tough, and iv had a little trouble geting it 2 once or twice,

    1' keep toping it up, and hope it hold's out? what would it do if i did that? would it get in to the clutch and make it slip if it got bad?

    2' get the seal's done on it, ( any one know how much that would cost? &can you do that on these gear box's? or once they start to go you need a new 1??

    3' get a new 1 as it would be just as much to get the seal's done?

    4' what gear box would be the best to put back in?

    would be very greatful for any helpful reply's

    Put a 6 speed one in it Paul. I think my mate might have some second hand boxes if you need to replace the original.

    Well seeing where it's leakin from would be a good start. Is it from where the drive shafts go in, is it from the end casing plate, could it just be from the gearbox level plug?

    1 thing i do know it aint from the level plug, as we looked for that when it was up on the ramp's , it seem's to be coming from the very bottem of the gear box the closet to the ground, as there's no oil up on or around the gear box, just the bottom of it, which im geussing is the caseing plate? where it join's together?



    cheer's the reply paul

    Hey m8!!!

    Before u start doing anything on your gearbox, i would first look where it's leaking...


    I have a leaking Oil cooler hose and it's leaking oil on the driveshaft and over the gearbox....


    Please look at the hoses to be sure that your gbox is leaking...


    Goodluck m8
