The front seal is leaking on my 465. It was leaking badly when I bought the blazer. Took it apart and replaced the seal around the input shaft, emery clothed the shaft, then bolted everything back together. The thing still pucks out oil. Took it apart again /forums/images/icons/mad.gif and the seal still looks good. I can feel it fit snug over the input shaft when I slide it on. What is my problem!! /forums/images/icons/confused.gif The top vent is open. Thought it might be building up pressure. Only advise so far has been to; cut the spring a little shorter (@1/4") around the seal to tighten the seal. Silicone around the bolts and seal /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Has anyone siliconed the front gasket on or removed the gasket and siliconed the cover on? Thought this would move the seal up closer on the input shaft. I need some ideals. The tranny is too heavy to keep removing it and my clutch doesn't like the oil. Will be replacing the clutch also.
