Thanks for the input. T-150 transmission. i
ve got a new fork lever boot to put on, mine was torn.
it just seems odd that those holes are exposed... plus the entire (even the exposed part) of the clutch housing flange was real shiny...like it had never been exposed to elements.... don't remember taking off any cover or plate though. Maybe i just don't remember steel brushing the whole flange.
I go through pretty deep mud and water in this jeep(see profile picture) so wanted to make sure.
on an unrelated side note- when i drained the transmission fluid from the old transmission... there were two fluids in there. one was black (the gear oil) and the other half of the fluid was a watery brown...i'm guessing mud. must have come in through the breather valve. i should probably follow that waterproofing thread on here.
