    Hi all,
    I have a prm 302d pretty much same as 402d and 500. I have a slight oil leek from one of the end caps on the gearboxs the buts up to the bell housing.
    There is three end caps there. Input shaft oil o ring and oil seal housing / output shaft end cap with oil o ring. And the lay shaft end cover. with oil o ring
    The one i am having problems with is the Lay shaft Oil Seal and cover.
    The other two o ring oil seal endcaps i can pop off with a flat bladed screw driver.
    The Layshaft end cap there does not seem to be room to put flat blade in and pop off.
    Anyone got any ideas ?
    I really dont want to split gearbox as i only just painted it:(
