Tippy:

Will it run along the outside, or somewhere not visible?

In this case, I don't think that it was the trans fluid. But before I cleaned things up, it looked to me like the oil at the rear end was flowing from a section of the case split line about half way along the engine.

That was after about 1000 miles. I have only done 20 or so since the cleanup, so I wouldn't think that oil from the trans would travel that far yet.

I did wonder if there was any way for trans fluid to travel that far without being obvious. I mean ahead of where it looked like the oil was coming from the split, it was dry and clean.

I have fluorescent dye coming to use in the trans to help track where the oil is coming from.
