Kevin, I have a B, but I believe the WD has the same similar type setup. May be a 1/4" pipe plug in the side of the final drive pan. Crank that out and stick yer' pinky finger in the hole and see if your finger comes out with oil drippin' off it. If it does yer' right up to snuff. If you can't feel anything on the side that's leaking, it's obviously lower than it's supposed to be and either fixing the problem, or adding some gear oil would keep things from getting ruined. My B had leaks everywhere. At the final drive seals, and the final drive pan gaskets. After the resto, with new seals and pan gaskets that I made, the leaks were gone. I use 80w90 Valvoline gear oil in my B. Gear oil is anyone's preference...

I just used permatex on my final drive pans, I saw on a web site that a guy said that you could do it and so far no leaks x my fingers. If it does I guess it is not a big job to put gaskets on it. I just thought that it would be good for the next 50 years like the last guy did.
