Ken,

I once had the land tranny leak out a bunch of it's oil and found that
the side cover plate had worked it's way loose. Fixing that was a
simple matter of tightening up the cover bolts. Some leakage at the
water tranny shafts is common and probably the best thing to do about
it is to put a bit of non-hardening gasket seal on the shafts when you
put the water tranny together. I've always found that the shifter
shafts leak a bit even with new rubber around them. It's not too much
though and heck it protects the bottom anyway.

out of the 'shaft plugs?' at the end of the tranny.
