Oil Leak

Post by Brian Lees » Wed Aug 04, 2004 9:33 pm

My new aquisition 80 Darmah SS seems to have developed an oil leak in the countershaft area. no doubt from sitting in a barn for the last 10 years. any hints would be greatfully appraciated. I sure hope in not going to have to go inside to put in a new seal.

thanx

Brian,

make sure the nut that retains the sprocket is tightened, otherwise the oil exits between the distancering and the sprocket.
