    my fixed yoke 205, on a 71, it appears to be leaking thru the nut on the front yoke, anyone else seen this problem. it's not a small little grease stain it's a drip. (found after I've pulled front driveshaft) also which side of the adaptor (350 auto) is the seal on, or is there seals on both sides of the adaptor to the tranny.

    My original '72 205 front output did this as well. When I changed the fluid in it, I merely removed the front output yoke and then cleaned it up. After cleaning it I ran a large bead of silicone on the inside of the splines of the yoke and then installed it. This seemed to do the trick. I ran it like that for at least 4 years before I had to remove the yoke because I broke it. Hope this helps.

    yep, clean it up real good and put silicon around it.
    oil is running by the splines.
