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.

easy fix, done outside the motor. 2 different seals, 1 small one just inside the countershaft sprocket in the tube, you can stuff in 2 or 3, the larger one on the outside of the shaft is harder to replace but not too difficult, usually it is the samll one[s]...... I stock both. Clean everything up real well, go for a ride, then look to see where exactly it is leaking from then get back to me to buy the seals.
