Its got a Perkins diesel and leaks from the little hole in the bottom by the access plate. It is transmission fluid not engine oil. What is the typical area that leaks? Im sure its a split to repair?

I get about a cup after shut down, I dont see it leaking so much while its running

Thanks
Craig

Does it have Multi-Power? If it does, it is probably leaking between the M-P valve and the outer input shaft. There are cast iron seeling rings in there that wear groves into the valve
housing. The tractor will have to be split between engine and bell housing.

Yes, split the tractor. The two seals on the input shaft needs to be replaced as others have shown. The rubber in the seals hardens and cracks.

The youtube channel 'bundy bears' has a really good tear down video series that helps.

I would also replace the shifter boots as they rot out, letting water into the gearbox and often locking the shifters plus corroding bearings. Just got done with a tear down and rebuild of a TO-35 gearbox for all that.

While you have the gearbox drained of fluid, you should also replace the output PTO shaft seal.
If it hasn't gone out yet it will unless recently replaced.

Make sure the cotter pin holes you are getting oil drips from are cleaned out from the inside after opening the bell housing. The cotter pins are there to break crusty oil so you don't flood that cavity and wet the clutches.
