    Nothing will fall out but when was the O-ring on the output shaft last changed ? They usually leak from there as the O-ring hardens.

    It's easier on the bench with it taken out but you could pull it apart in situ and replace the O-ring.

    Just dont look too close at it mate. Luckily its a long way up. With the damage it had, it didnt come up too bad afterall.

    Thanks Colin

    It's coming out of the bottom gasket face. Just hope I still ave enough EP90 to top it up again. I think I may have almost exhausted my supply between
    Ralph and Ernie's gearboxes and the steering boxes.

    Cheers Ian
