if you have a manual transmission, you can't have any leaking from the rear seal, or it will soon ruin your clutch.

Doug maybe that was making your clutch slip, i would change the rear main seal. Also look at your oil pan gasket on my red z it was leaking in the back and making its way into the bellhousing...

There is a seal on the tranny input shaft and on the back of the engine. So no, there shouldn't be ANY oil in there. I always replace both the rear main engine seal AND the front tranny seal whenever I have a tranny out of a car. Again I feel the dealer seals are MUCH better than the aftermarket ones, had too many problems with leaks when I used something else.

oil pan is leaking on the left, engine was just rebuilt too!. Just changed the oil also! dammit. I have a 5 speed though that is whining in 2nd and third i think the guy said. So im going to be replacing some bearings, just dont know which ones in the tranny. I am putting a 2+2 flywheel in it with a 79zx 5 speed tranny, any advice? can i use the fork from a 280z tranny?
