Remember Project Help? Well, first, sorry no pics this time! Just to refresh, Project Help is a 1949 Cub that belongs to some friends, one of which has lukemia, and can no longer work on anything, so I have been working on it. What I thought was a rear main turned out to be the trans seal. I have now repalced it, BUT its leaking AGAIN!!!!!! Ive ran it maybe 3 hours since repalcement. So 2 questions, 1: The sealing surface on the shaft is fine, no wear, but I put a speedy sleeve on it anways. Im wondering if something internal could be causing it to force the seal to leak, I know doesnt sound like I want it to! I did just notice that it acts like it wants to go into first, but as soon as you let the clutch out, it jumps out. I saw no visible wear, or felt anything wore I could get my hands on. 2: I know I can split at the engine, then take off the torque tube, but has anyone split one at the trans?
