Ocelot, a 1990 K75C, has a weep hole bottom center aft of what appears to be where the tranny lives. A drop of oil appears there from time to time. Not enough to leave a spot on the floor. Runs grand, clutch tight, no probs.
I lubed both drive shaft ends yesterday. Both dry as bone and slightly rusted. So I expect the clutch input splines are probably equally dry. I'll tear into that next weekend. When I do, what will I find in there most likely weeping which I ought to have a gasket, seal, or O-ring ready to replace? Or is it apt to be something which is more trouble than it's worth?
Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism, complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and solemn preachers thundering doom. The name of God is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object remains the same: to suck all the life out of life and make you live on the husk.
