[TR] TR2/3 A type OD question

At VTR a few weeks ago there was a transmission tech session and the presenter (Steve Yott) said that most trannys can be made to not leak except for the A-type. No further explanation was provided.

Just repeating what was said. I have an A-type so that was not the best news I’ve heard lately. And it does leak albeit slowly.

The right stuff is really good at sealing tough leaks so maybe someday I’ll try it if I ever have my A-type apart again.
