driveshaft question

According to the FSM tranny fluid shouldn't pour out of the trans when you remove the d-shaft. My bros Zuk is leaking with the d-shaft in-- What are the possible causes?? Too much fluid?? Could the d-shaft be defective?? The trans has just been rebuilt. TIA

Re: driveshaft question

first, check the level of the fluid, make sure it isnt overfull. if overfull, would cause it to come out when you remove the driveshaft. if on a LITTLE angle, it will come out too. but for it to leak with the shaft in, i would guess a shot seal first. if the tranny had just been rebuilt, it should have a new rear seal, so makes a fella wonder. did they mar the seal when installin it, did they even replace the rear seal (got that problem here a lot), or is it a messed up driveshaft. check the drive shaft, make sure it looks/feels good. just a little nick in it will eat a seal. rub a piece of cotton on it to check for nicks, or hooks that would catch n ruin the seal. i would plan on a seal either way though.
just a opinion here
