    TR-4 Transmission/OD leak

    Had engine & Trans/OD rebuilt, new gears etc. 1500 miles ago. I know the crank pan leaks, but not bad. But I have a transmissinon oil leak someplace. Anybody have any suggestions as to what it might be?

    Could be almost anywhere, but the places I've had the most trouble with are the adapter plate (which can get distorted until it won't seal) and the OD drain plug.

    Oh yeah, and the seals for the shift rods. Seems that most of the replacements sold these days don't fit properly unless you add a backing washer behind them.
