I am still searching for the source of my oil leak, I removed the stator cover and reapplied the gasket material and it stopped the majority of the leaking, but I am still seeing oil on my left boot, side stand, and left swing arm, it is driving me to distraction!

I am thinking about adding 10% (12oz) of Lucas Oil Stop Leak and see if will help. I email Lucas Oil and they indicated the stop leak would be safe for the clutch but thought I would post the question here.

Will it hurt anything to replace 12oz of the oil in my AT with Lucas Oil stop leak?

Thanks!

Brian

You could clean everything extremely well, then put some dye made for oil into it. The dye glows under black light. I bought a small bottle of dye at my local auto parts store, but maybe I had to order a black-light flashlight. Run it for a short time to see where the leak starts, before it gets all over everything again.

If you can find a real auto parts store they should have it. Otherwise… Amazon.

I skipped the oil dye and replaced 300ml of engine oil with Lucas oil stop leak. That stuff is thick!

Will post an update after 200-300 miles if it worked or not.
