Re: speedo gear leaking?

i have to ask, but you filled it in the fill hole and not the hole where the speedo gear goes correct?

and when i rebuilt my t-case, i used some silicone on the speedo gear hole. doesnt leak and i dont see how it would be a problem

Re: speedo gear leaking?

Was the o-ring new or used?

I've had that experience before and I believe that the used o-ring was stretched out just slightly enough for it not to seat properly or produce a good enough seal. Put in a new o-ring and fixed it.

Re: speedo gear leaking?

2x on the O-ring theory. There's a sharp edge where the O-ring slips over to seat in place. Most likely you tore the O-ring when you installed the speedo gear housing....
