Have a small oil leak on the tranny side, really just a drop or two every now and then trying to pinpoint the leak any ideas?

Hi Gary,
I think RR's nailed it there. Drain the primary drive, apply half a dozen rounds of plumber's teflon tape to the threads of the drain plug and reinsert. I've been doing this each oil change on my car for the last 15 years for the same issue, works for me. How's life in Guam these days?

Nb. Refill primary before setting off again. But I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that...

You may want to check to see if the leak may be coming from the O-ring inside the primary housing that makes it leak down the clutch cable.
