Working on a jubilee that hasn't run in
about a year. Got it running this weekend.
There is a milky, watered down, oil coming
out of the timing inspection hole. Engine
oil is black on dip stick. Where is it
coming from/what would cause it?

Timing cover gives access to timing marks on the the flywheel, which is in the bell housing, which is supposed to be dry. There is a hole on the bottom of the bell housing area that is supposed to have a cotter pin in it that is loose enough that it can rattle around from the vibrations of the tractor top keep the hole clear of dirt and mud so that any fluid that might get in there can drip out through the hole and not contaminate the clutch. SO that hole is most likely clogged.

The fluid is probably from a leak in the front seal of the transmission.

I would make sure that hole is clear so fluid can drain. Then I would check the fluid level in the transmission along with the quality of the fluid as well.

Engine or transmission are the only choices. Look at the trans lube especially if the shifter boot is split or missing.

Also check or replace the gear shift boot. Rain water might be getting down through it.

It is possible that water is getting in through a bad gear shift boot, but it is definitely getting in as WATER vapor as air goes in and out. All tractors are constantly getting moisture in the cases, but the ones that are working hard enough for long enough regularly enough are getting the oil hot enough to drive the moisture out, so it never accumulates.

Pulled trans cover off because I also need to tighten starter button. Trans fluid has water in it. Shifter boot was bad so that explains that.
I'm curious how bad it's actually leaking. But, I plan to split the tractor and install an Everette transmission so I'll just have to split it twice.

Which trans seal do I need?

I would guess the engine or something the transmission is leaking. When we put a Sherman Transmission in our 8n and left it on a hill, the tractors bell housing filled up with tranny oil and since the cover was loose, oil was being flung out of the hole.
