Any brand of engine oil stop leak will do, CD-2, Eagle, Turkey, etc.
Buy 2 cans, one in the engine, ½ in the tranny, ½ in the rear diff.
Gunk and hose down the engine bay and full underside such that you
can monitor leak status. I have never had to replace a rotary shaft
seal in any car, some over 300K.
