    depends on your mechanical knowledge reall,y you can get new seal(s), or get a good used nonleaking box, etc.


    '80-up use metric fittings, the casting of the boxes changed for this that year

    if it's just leaking i would just reseal it buyt if you notice alot of slop in the box then you need to rebuild it.
    I can send you a reseal kit or a rebuild kit. I also can rebuild it for 100 but sometimes it's cheaper to go to a local parts store.
