I have not put too much oil in it.. its kinda thick well for the rear.. 2000K..
The silicone set and when turning each end with my hands its leaking.. bloody thing. not leaking as much as with no silicone but still leaks..
It seems a bit hit and miss.. some ppl are saying they just put the thing together no silicone no sanding and no leaks.. WTF. wish I was in that boat.. the amount of times I have built this to get it right and not leak is crazy..
I know they leak a little.. like my NT1 but this is too much leaking.
Are you using the new gasket and the new X-rings?
All my Spec-R geardiffs are almost not leaking at all. I sand the back of the gears (all of them), and when I tighten the screws, I do it in a cross-pattern, in order to get the pulley down evenly. I noticed the first time (when not cross-tightening) that the pulley wasn't sitting evenly.
