Just bought a "78 280Z. Is there supposed to be oil in that shifter hole? It looks like motor oil, I don't know if it's gear box oil. I was taking out the shift handle to replace the bushings which have totally disintegrated without a trace, and I notice oil in the hole where the shifter rests, and when I blot it , it puddles in again. I also have some other type of oil seepage up front, near the tranny/engine connection, but it may be unrelated. so does the shift lever and bottom bushing somehow keep that oil in there? Or do I have a leak or both??
