[DML] Gearbox overhaul

My car has had one of the drive shaft lips seals leaking for some time (not
quite the 5 years I have had the car) so it is something I have always meant
to get around to. The leak has now picked up the pace a bit (gearbox was
topped up a little while back to compensate) I will need to move it up the
list to 'very soon' especially in light of below. To put it into perspective
I would probably have the odd single drop left on the garage floor per car
ride which is now a few drops every time. 

My original clutch (26yrs old and 27k miles) has now started slipping since
the clutch slave cylinder started leaking and was subsequently replaced with
a new part (it is in the wars) so the gearbox will need to come out anyway. 

What little rubber gaskets and other seals should I order so that I can
ensure I have no leaks in the future (from the gear box at least)? 

My gearbox changes okay, but is a little notchy and the little rubbers for
the linkages that ensure a quiet, slick silent change could also benefit
from changing. Any suggestions on anything else that should be replaced or
worked on whilst the clutch/gearbox are out of the car?


Thanks in advance

Chris Hawes
