A buddy has a 65 3000 gasser with 8 speed tranny. The tractor has been leaking fluid out the cover around the shift levers. Owner claims not to have added any fluid to tranny this year. I saw the post on here a while back on a 600 with the same symptoms and was wondering if the 3000 has the same problematic hydraulic line running through the transmission as the 600 series. If not, how else can the fluid rise in the tranny. Thanks for the help Dan

Condensation... they make water. Bet if you drain it the oil will look like a milkshake. Hope that it's not leaking past the input shaft seal and soaking the clutch...

About the only way a 3000 could "make" fluid in the tranny is if the output shaft seals are leaking and oil from the rear end is entering into it.
The hydraulic lines are external - over the top and down the right side - unlike the pre 65 tractors that had the hyd lines go through the tranny.
I would keep an eye on the oil level in the rear end for loss.
