I know you've mentioned the stop leak stuff. In this case, I feel better
about replacing the seal. Now, if the rear crankshaft oil seal starts to
leak, I think I'll try the stop leak first! What a bear that would be to
replace... Also the cost.. while I'm there, I'd want to replace a whole
boat load of other things to avoid taking the transmission out again...
