Hurth Transmission Leak

I have transmission fluid in the bilge after running the boat. I cannot find a leak anywere. While running the boat there is no oil in the bilge. Back at the dock still no oil. Come back the next day and a least a quart of Transmission oil is in the bilge. I'm at a loss as to what's cauing the problem.

Has anyone had a similar experience, or a guess as to what the problem might be??

I do have an oil cooler, but have not seen any fluid on or around it, as far as the spare oil its stored in the dockbox so probably not a factor.

Re: Hurth Transmission Leak

I'm assuming your keep adding oil to the transmission. It holds less than a qt., a bit more with a cooler. If so that's the problem. Seal in the trans, oil line, oil cooler. If your not adding oil the leak has nothing to do with the trans. (it would only leak a qt. one time.)

Re: Hurth Transmission Leak

Maybe the alignment is off, so the rotation is working the shaft seal to leak, that then still stops leaking when the shaft is stationary.
