My output shaft seal started leaking this weekend. Is it as simple to replace as removing the front pully and then the cover and replace the seal or does the trans. need to be removed and sent in? Thanks Jim

This is a 98 single speed.

Hi Jim, Hopefully it is something simple.

The early 1 speed autos have a small output shaft bearing which was upgraded to a larger one in the later "B" models.

A leak is the first sign of a bearing failure in the early models.

If your ser. # has a B in it you may be able to get away with just replaceing the seal.

But you may be looking at a upgrade/rebuild anyway.

The ser. # is under the battery box.

Jim . my seal leaked because the cage came apart on the bearing. Jim Callaway sent me the updated parts needed to put the larger bearing in, along with instructions. It wasn't that hard of a job and I left the trans bolted to the engine when I did it . Plus the parts came N/C. I would call Jim and talk with him.

Jim,
Mike is right about that series of tranies. Check the #. My seal went but it was a result of the bearing failing and taking out the seal. When it went it leaked all at once just after I parked it. If it dosen't have the upgrade code you would want to send to Nesco.
