Tranny 901 Oil Leak-Need Advice Please!

Have 76'-914 w/901 Tranny. Xmission fluid is coming out or around the speedometer angle drive, then on the end casing and on the ground. Drips, no runs. Then, overtighting the set bolt stripped and pulled out of the end casing. Do I need a new end cashing for the tranny-and what seals can be replaced on the angle drive? thank you, bob

There is an O-ring on the angle drive mechanism inside the rear casing...it can be accessed by removing the clamping screw on the end casing.

Yes, got that one solved. And thanks! But, if the lock set bolt on the end casing is stripped, then any ideas on fix? Or, is it the time to buy a new end cap casing?

It can be fixed. I am not sure if a Helicoil will take in something that thin--but it might. Or you can take the cover (get a new gasket) to a machine shop and have them install a "Timesert". This is a threaded insert--sort of like a nut--that is installed into the metal.

Actually, the machine shop would have a pretty good idea on if a Helicoil will work on the hole.

Thanks Dave-I am planning on doing just that. Taking the end cap to a machine shop and trying an insert. Thanks. Bob
