t150 Shift Rail Leek help

Hi Guys,
I removed the floor section to look at the top of trany to see if I can find the source of a leak. I noticed the shift rail caps are missing. Gear oil is oozing out. Any ideas how to remedy? Should I get new caps or? Is fluid supposed to be able to come out of the shift bores?

Thanks

I'd try and source some new caps. I had new caps included with my rebuild kit. There was also a factory recall at one point due to the rear seal being installed backwards.

1952 Willys M38 (to be restored)

2001 XJ, mildly built.

I called Novak and tried to get new caps. He said they were 7/8 expansion plugs and I would need to get from local parts store. Note: They do come with the master rebuild kit as you mentioned.

Last night I removed the t150 shifter and top as a complete assembly. There was no need to remove the shifter separatly. Eight bolts later and I just lifted the assemby out. No need to worry about dropping the alignment pins in trany....

I cleaned the bore ends, added some red lock tight, and tapped the plugs in place with a socket and hammer. My gasket for the shifter top comes tomorrow so I will slap that on and go for a ride. I think this will resolve my problem. Thanks for the help.
