    My 208 leaks around the surfaces where you bolt it together at in the middle which encloses the chain, if you guys get what I mean. I guess thats where it splits into halfs, and then also around the cone which covers the tail slip yoke.

    Are their gaskets for this or is it just hte tryed and trued silicone process?

    Fortunately for myself, I didn't have to split the main case. But the tail cone was leaking where it met the case. I just took the bolts out after draining the case, backed off the cone and cleaned the surfaces of any fluid. Black RTV did the trick.

    If you really want it to never leak again take it apart & thoroughly clean it. then use some 3Bond m/c engine case sealant or Subaru engine block sealant (roughly the same stuff) to glue the case halves back together.
    The guy who who has to split it the next time won't be too happy with you, but it won't leak.

    I only pulled tail section and back half of case just to reseal. The back of the truck was on jack stands so had plenty of room to work. Shifter rod spring and washer is on back half and needs to be right when case back half gets put back. It's not hard to do just make sure where rtv go's all is clean or it will leak again.
