    Anybody ever pulled a transmission out of a JCB 212? We suddenly developed an oil leak out from an inspection hole in the torque converter compartment and looks like we need to pull things apart-not that we needed this problem just when starting back to work! We need to find a repair manual without going thru the dealer if possible. Anyone know where we might be able to order one? And if you've dealt w/ JCB smaller tractors, you probably know how small working spaces are. Anybody done that before?

    Yeah, Threadbreaker, it was the pilot shaft on the torque converter that was broken off and evidently allowed just a little wiggle to wear the seal out even though the spring plate was ok. A new pilot shaft welded on by a shop and a new seal fixed it.
