Depends where the leak is located dictates the difficulty in fixing  it.  In 
the OD there are small o-rings around the operating shaft that are  sometimes 
missing or broken that causes a slow but steady leak. They can usually  be 
repaired with the gearbox/OD in the car. Another leaky location is the large  cap 
over the filter screen.  Usually just a matter of getting the correct  fiber 
washer installed a tightening.  Case leaks in the OD requie removal.  Remember 
that the gearbox shares its oil with the OD so the leak can be a front  seal 
at the input shaft, gearbox drain plug and a few other areas. The shock  
coversions are almost always an improvement. Buy it, you won't be sorry you  
did.... at least not all the time.
