LT77 5th gear stop leaking..

developed a leak here, looks like its been leaking for a while. Parts manual shows no gasket. Surprised fluid reaches that high in the box. Anyone else seen this leak before? Lousy picture but its FRC7313..(at least I think it is)..

It leaks from the grease that is packed Into the shifter remote above it. The grease will settle at the bottom of the remote over time. Super easy to fix,. Pop it off, clean it up and back rtv it!

I actually find it easier to get to this from above not from Below. It may be a good time for you to clean out the gearbox remote/shifter housing and re grease everything. There are a few gaskets up there that you can renew as well. A trip to the coin-op car wash before you do this job will make it much more pleasant. Hit that area with high pressure water and engine degreaser

Yea I hear that! If you have a spartan interior like mine... I power washed the trans from the top as well with the hump off. Juts laid tarps over everything.

If you are gonna take the time to do it well rent a legit power washer, makes it much easier
