I recently rebuilt and installed a t18 in my 78 CJ7. It's now leaking from around the countershaft on the front of the tranny. Has anyone
experienced this or is it just me?



I have a rebuilt T-5 in an 83CJ7 and it leaks there too!!! The guys
at the trans shop who did the work sealed it inside with Hylomar by Loctite
and silicone on the outside but it still leaked, so I pulled it again this
time I used J-B weld with no luck with it either!! My last option will
be Metal Magic by Loctite if it doesn't work I will try another case I'll
let you know in acouple of weeks if it works.

Good luck on yours!!! Bert in SD


Alec, I told you that thing was leaking before WE (yes, WE, YOU AND I) installed that bad boy. , But you didn't listen. Don't even ask--I'm not pulling that thing back out again...take it to PETE!!
