ok

remove the boot at the bottom of the shifter. the lines go down to a valve. there are 2 small lines and a large line. make sure there is no leak at that area. if the leak is not at that area then it is the range cylinder in the trans.

the leak is coming from the shifter Knob itself, as soon as i put it in high it starts leaking

did you replace the lines as well??

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
no, it happened when the clutch was replaced

check the lines down to the valve I told you about. sounds like you will be replacing one or both of the lines.

if you had the clutch replaced they should do this repair for you as it was part of the repair procedure/
