Dang, dude! Use some punctuation and capitalization!

You should be able to replace this from the outside. You won't be able to make the leaking seal work right.

Drain the oil so that it doesn't bleed all over you.

Take the shifter off and all (of course), and clean the shaft completely — rust and everything. You are going to be sliding the new seal over the shaft, and any rust, nicks or dirt can damage the new seal. If necessary, take some sandpaper to it to remove rust or whatever.

Get some kind of hook, like the kind used to get rocks out of a horse's hoof, and pry the old seal out. Be careful not to damage the housing where the new seal will go. The housing is aluminum, and that is why you need to guard it. the shifter shaft is steel, and will be harder to damage. You might be able to drive an awl into the old seal and pry it out that way. You might be able to put a hole in it and use a crochet hook to get the old seal out.

Once you have the old seal out (and the steel form that helps it hold its shape), lubricate the shifter shaft, slide the new seal into place, and use a good fitting piece of pipe slid over the shifter shaft to carefully drive the new seal into position.

Refill with oil.

You dont have to strip the engine. Drive a self tapping screw into it and pull it out.

SOURCE: Yamaha Venture Motorcycle drive shaft oil seal part #

Part numbers 9,15,22, and 33 are all oil seals on that microfiche,are those the ones you found? If you can remove the seal often the part number is stamped on it somewhere, or you can take the seal to a bearing place and they can usually get a comparable one.

SOURCE: oil leaking from clutch push lever

Sounds like a worn seal. If you remove the cover and knock out the seal any atv dealer should be able to replace it.

Oil leaking around gear shifter


There should be an oil seal around the shifter shaft, least ways there was on the older models. I've replaced them by removing the shift lever and carefully prying the old seal out and then drive a new one in. Since I don't work on the newer machines, I can't tell you for sure but I doubt Harley has changed this.

Good Luck

I have a 1981 suzuki gs 400 and the gear lever seams to be sticking badly. Can't get it back into neutral ? It has been leaking but I don't know where from


Chances are strong the bike has a bent shift fork. This is a major repair requiring a complete engine tear down. As far as the leak goes, there is a shift shaft seal, drive-shaft ( sprocket shaft ) seal, Kick shaft seal. shift drum switch seal, crank shaft seals and clutch shaft seal. Also, there is the right outer case cover gasket, oil filler "O" ring seal, and the center case mating surface seal. The center case seal is actually a semi-liquid gasket compound applied to the mating surfaces prior to the center case re-assembly. The shift fork repair is not recommended for the unexperienced home mechanic. Below are the main parts if a Suzuki shift mechanism and a diagram of how the shift forks move left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_15.gif

How to fix oil leak from top of a manual gearbox housing


sorry but its going to be a big job. you need to remove the gearbox to open up and get to the seals. you could try and use an additive in the gear box, its like oil seal for engine you can get it for engines gear boxes and difs and power steering. it sometimes goes by seek and seal, in older vehicles its quite good. you will need to replace the oil it will need to be done twice to clean it all out so it can get a good seal.. i.e change oil run engine get the gearbox to move for 20 min then change the oil as its warm not hot so let it cool down for 10-20 min then drain. put the seek and seal in and top up with oil and run as normal, check after a few days to see if its worked. usual does.

When i shift gears on my motorcycle sometimes it pops in neutral an a little oil leaks from the shifter


Popping out of gear is caused by excess wear and/or damage to the transmission gears and/or shift forks. The gears engage each other using what are called "dogs". When the dogs become worn, they allow the gears to force each other apart - especially under accelleration - causing the transmission to pop out of gear. Repairing this mean a complete teardown of the bottom end of the engine will be needed.

The oil leak is a much easier fix; where the shift-shaft goes into the crankcase is a seal. Remove the retaining clip and carefully pry out the old seal and replace it with a new one.

Door/drum seal has split causing a major leak also had probs for last few months where it gets to last 10 mins of cycle then it just counts down and doesnt complete the cycle it then gets stuck on 1 min...


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

And rate me nice pl for the free help!

Removal of drive shafts


Hi
Take a tyre lever a put in between the g/box and inner cv joint put slight pressure but be sure you are not catching the oil seel, Then give the Cv a slight knock away from the g/box. It has a cir clip inside that keeps it from moving out while driving.
