Transmission Leak

Hello Guys,

A couple of weeks ago I was topping up all the fluids in my Rover. When I got
to the transfer case I took the fill plug out and it was over full and the gear oil
that came out had a reddish tinge. My first thought was "great, rust in the transfer
case". Then, I went to top up the transmission with ATF and it was low. Ding...then
the light went on. I went and checked the gear oil in the transfer case again and I think
it's contaminated with ATF. Since the transmission has been low again and the t-case
is even more over full and more red. My question is what is the connection between the
two...I mean is it an O-ring, a shaft seal or what? I hope I can remove the t-case
without removing the tranny and I figure someone else has done that, maybe because of
this same problem. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Bryan

Sounds like a blown output shaft seal
Part Number ICV100000
Description REAR OIL SEAL LT77
Retail Price $7.14 exc. VAT (Rimmer Bros.)

Can probably find it state-side without a problem, just easy to find part numbers on that site.

The transmission & t-box are separate units that use separate oils. there are 2 seals that separate the gearboxes with a small hollow space between them. The space between them contains a drain slot. I have never seen LR boxes cross contaminate fluids. I have seen people seal the transfer case to the transmission. If the drain slot was completely plugged it may be possible to cross contaminate the fluids. I would probe the drain slot with a piece of stiff wire...if you have transmission oil come out, that will prove your theory. What transmission are you using?

Transmission is a R380

I'll check for the plugged drain tonight. Haven't been in mud in a long time..
so if it is clogged it would have to caused by something else.
Thanks.

The part number above is for the transmission side. The other should face the opposite direction (sealing the transfer case) so I did not include that number. I would be happy to find it for you if needed.

Thanks Scott but...

I ordered the transfer case and transmission seals from George at RDS.
I do appreciate the offer though.

Thanks to you to Rob.
