Hi glenn parker,

Thank you for the donation.

At the pinion flange, there is an oil seal and it is bad resulting in the leaking. When parked, it would not leak as the oil level does not reach that point.

To replace/remove the oil seal, the propeller shaft the oil seal has to be disconnected and the central nut removed. After taking out the pinion flange, the oil seal can be removed.
