Shaft Leak

I noticed mine is not a dripping leak but I can see a little remnant of something on the shaft where it goes in the engine

Mine is sitting at House of Pain right now for that same seal. Should be done by the weekend, if the part comes in so they say...

I realize that we all seem to have the same leak , i had mine replaced once( warranty) and have not had a releak yet. Has anyone replaced there seal or had it replaced and had it leak again ? Maby this is just a bad batch of seals and it may not happen again.... any thoughts

Hey Vaughn.. It may be because you ride so many water wheelies that the oil is draining out of your front end..Try moving your beer cooler to the front to keep it down some. Ha Ha Ha.. I know you too well.. I am surprised that your front tires on your truck dont get another 10,000 miles more that your rear tires. Love Ya..Ha Ha Ha.... C-Ya

Mine too is leaking. Has anyone had problems getting this fixed under warranty? Once my warranty is gone how hard would it be to replace this seal?

Spoke to Vaughn yesterday.. He said he bought 4 extra seals in case the seal goes again. Everyone is hoping that it was just a bad batch of seals and there are no more problems with it. He has not riden it since he replaced it. Keepin' our fingers crossed.

Where does it leak too? What I mean is how did you notice it leaking? When it's on the trailer or what?
