    Hello everyone this will be my first post! I am new to this site and sn95 in general. I came across this problem a week ago while driving on the highway my tailshaft seal blew off so i replaced the old seal with a factory one. I thought that would fix my problem but no the next morning i checked to see if anything was leaking and there was a big pile toward the back of the transmission pan. I assumed it was the transmission pan gasket so i replaced that. Woke up the next morning to find just as big of a pile as before but it still was leaking from the same spot (toward the back of the pan). Could this be the tailshaft housing? It is not leaking from anywhere high on the transmission it looks like it is right behind the pan! If it is the transmission housing is there a gasket that i need to buy and if so from where and is it easy enough to change it in your driveway? Any info on this matter would help me a lot.
