Re: Leaky GB gearbox

Is it leaking round the outside of the seal rather than along the shaft?
if so a smear of sealant round the seal before fitting it to the box.

Re: Leaky GB gearbox

Cut the finger off one of those thin plastic gloves or use a part of a thin plastic bag
put it over the shaft and slide the o'ring/seal over it, you can then gently pull the bag
out from under the seal/o'ring with the case fitted.
