I noticed gear lube all over the trunk on my 65 custom and noticed drips around where the center section meets the housing,I have not did a inspection at this time to determine where its actually leaking from but could a clogged vent be forcing the lube out. I did notice its not comming out the pinion seal but it has to be repaired and will look at it when the new rear brake drums come in. Jeff

definitely - the gear lube can get up to more than 100 degrees when youre on the highway. That builds up quite a bit of pressure that has to go somewhere, especially if you have a weak seal.
