more than likely its the drain plug. drain it and fill the gearbox with some good tacky grease. that way you dont have to worry about it making a mess if it ever leaks.

I have used a 50/50 mix of gear oil and grease on others that leaked. This one is not leaking, but I may take your advice and go with a heavier than gear oil mixture.

I would agree with a 50/50 mix. That is what I put in mine last winter while I had it apart. I went all summer and has not leaked yet. Also, as many have said on here before, corn head grease would probably work also.

I got real lucky. Had the steering box apart on my SC, put it back together with new seals, etc., nothing special, just the way it was supposed to be, put in the recommended oil and it hasn't leaked a drop in several years. Maybe my converting it from tricycle to wide front helped, but it's nice to have one that doesn't leak. Both my JD H and MT leak, even after having the MT apart and going back together the same way I did on the IH SC. As soon as it stops leaking, indicating all the oil is out of it, I'm going to refill it with JD corn picker-head grease. I hear that dries 'em up. That's what I put in my AC G last fall, and no signs of leaks - of course even hell's froze up this winter.

Ouch! I just had my super c front end apart and installed new seals but no grease. Have not drove it yet cause I have to boil gas tank, but sure hope it does not leak. Did not even think about grease

A good solution which I did on my SA is to remove the fill plug and then drill and tap and install a grease fitting. When you lube the tractor, give it one squirt.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeIn that case, oil should stay in it.

Could be that it's not leaking because there may not be any oil in it? :)
