[DML] Weeping manual transmission axel seals


I think what you may need is a "Speedy Sleeve" shaft sleeve to repair the
grooved area of the shaft.

A Bearing and Seal Supplier such as Motion Industries should have what you

A Speedy sleeve is a thin metal sleeve that goes over the original shaft.

You may need to change the ID of the shaft seal to allow for the increased
shaft diameter.

Also, when you install the lip seal, use a sealant between the lip seal and
the transmission.

Subject: Grady solution for weeping manual transmission axel seals

I'm on a campaign to stamp out every last tiny drip from my car as I 
cann't stand a shop floor with spots on it. I have a weeping manual 
transmission axel seal that leaves about a drop per day on my floor 
that I'm keen to correct.

Aside from replacing the transmission lip seal, I believe someone told 
me that Rob Grady has some sort of sleeve that is used to improve the 
tighness of the seal in order to provide a bullet-proof long-term 

Does anyone have additional details on this? I think Rob posts 
occasionally, so maybe he can explain what this sleeve is, how it 
works, and how it's installed? If someone else has experience with 
this, I'd appreciate your insights.

Thanks in advance.
