arent manual transmissions sealed?

ive got an NV4500, i flipped it on its output shaft end to check something and i dumped about a quart of oil out of it. oil came out around the output shaft somewhere, is that normal or should i worry, and is there supposed to be a seal between the tranny and the t-case?

Re: arent manual transmissions sealed?

you killed two birds with one stone, nice.

so if they swap "fluids" than i guess that the tranny and the t case take gear oil 10W90? was it? i need to refill my tranny now.

<font color=green>Yeah, both of those should take gear oil. I cant beleive that none of the sickos in here took my swapping fluids post and made comments. I thought that it was very clever[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img].

Shaggy, I thought it was very clever indeed, I couldn't come up with anything to add to that..
And its 80w90 not 10w90. I hope.

Anyway, I thought all of GM's manual transmissions took ATF?

Re: arent manual transmissions sealed?

I just spent some time wandering. Everyone says they require 90w sythetic oil.

I wonder what ever happened to the ATF days..
