i did the 5 speed convo the other day and got the rear main replaced while the box was out.

now it seems to be leaking again. only a few drops on the concrete over night. as i am heading on the fm cruise tommorrow is there any chance the leak could get worse or will it just keep weaping out?

ha ha, gotta love solving your own problem :D
I had a similar thing, wanted to head to drags, but had a pool of powersteering fluid under my car.
Couldn't find the f**k leak, and thought my rack was f**k.
When I got under the car, i noticed fluid sprayed right down the chassis rail.
Turned out the switch had split, so I got some gas fittings and just blanked it off.
And went to the drags and knocked a second of my previous time :D
