Make sure you use the flat brass washers. There are a few of those bolts that go thru. the casing. First one I did I used new lock washers and had several leaks. I started putting a little sealant on the threads with the flat washers and no leaks.

Thanks, I used the flat washers and Permatex Ultra Black on the bolt threads. So far no leaks.

 The brass washers are on the 2 bearing housing 3/8th bolts on the back of the drop box or front depends on how you are looking at it and they will leak LOL

good luck

  Like I said, on the way home I really started to freak that mine wouldnt make it up my driveway. On paper it just wasnt going to climb a 22.5% grade with those high gears. But its sitting up here alongside the house right now so so much for paper and opinions, lol.

  Glad you got it changed out and working, it should be much more enjoyable now, if not more economical to boot.
