View Full Version : Trani Leak in 1985 S&S

03-05-2012, 05:05 PM
New to the forum and didn't see anything specific to my problem in any of the other posts. The Velvet Drive trani in my 1985 S&S is leaking into the bilge. Not a huge amount of leakage at 1 time but I suspect I need to change 1 or more seals. Before I pull the trani, anybody have any bright ideas on how I might be able to isolate where the leak is? Also; are there any good publications available that could walk me through the process if I do need to pull the trani?

see if it is possibly leaking around the shaft where you shifter linkage attaches, if so Skidim has the part, the shaft slides out from the opposite side, be careful there is a ball and spring behind your linkage

thanks for the suggestion but it's not leaking there. I had already removed the shift levar (and ball and spring) to lubricate. Looks like it's proabably the front seal leaking at the botton (gravity)
