    Has anyone else experienced there gear lube oil being transferred from the Rear ,threw torque tube to the transmission , over filling it ?
    32 Ford rear to 39 train's .
    4 inch Rake , measurement taken from the ground to frame .
     
  2. I bought a kit from a shop in Texas (can't remember his name). Consists of a flange that holds a seal. Goes in between torque tube and diff. Works awesome. I suppose a baffle would work too. But I like having it sealed up. Works nice.

  4. Bruce's hot rod shop was the place I think. His was reasonable price wise. It gets bolted in at the flange with the six bolts.
    Seabright has a little different style. Both do the same job but that one was more expensive.
     

  5. I think it was Bruce's rod shop that sold the seal kit.

    Thank for fast Reply's,
    So it's a common problem,
    I was thinking on Runing a DOT air brake line From fill hole @ train's to fill hole @ rear.
    3/8 or 7/16 line
     
  7. Well that's a creative solution. In my case it just leaked at the trans.

    You could try the baffle. I liked the seal better.

    Yes , I will look for seal ,

    D.O.T. Nylon Push lock for air brakes
    It looks to pushes less then 1/2 a quart with in 2,000 miles ,
    When I purchased the car it was @ stock ride Height.
    I noticed when I did my first service, that train's was over filled,( did not drain because of a little leakage)
    Rear was low , topped of rear , Now Secound service rear low with no leaks , figured out where it whent , so I removed extra from train's,
    Will test drive and see how much is lost in rear , every 50 -100 miles ,

    Here's the drill; drain off transmission, re-fill rear. Do so about twice during the summer, depending how much you drive and how steep the rake. What was the problem again?
