How do I stop oil from leaking from here? All other seals are good on tranny xfer combo, inlcuding seal between the two. This is the only area that I have a leak. There isn't any play, just oil coming thru the bearing.

Thanks in advance

Put a OEM gasket on the nosecone or RTV the heck out of the nosecone and reinstall. BTW, The oil on the bearing is a good thing you don't want to stop.

If you look at the stock gasket, there is a hole that lines up with the drain hole in the case, and there is a relief in the cover in this area too. No significant amount of oil should be behind that cover, as it is designed to drain back into the case. If you silicone over this hole, you will get oil sitting in the cover. Further, if you are using an Advance Adapter cross member mount, there are styles of these that do not have the drain provision, and will leak almost no matter what you do. On the later style mounts, they have incorporated the cover into the cross member so that you are not trying to seal up two area instead of just one.


Good luck!

You nailed it.... the po had used silicone instead of paper gasket..... they must have blocked off the passage causing the leak....

problem fixed...
