When they STOP leaking you’ve got trouble!

All kidding aside, make sure that you have all of the pieces to the Spicer joints. The primary source of leakage is between the large outer housing and the end cap which has a cork seal on the underside. With a good spring and a fresh band of cork you can get a pretty good seal. The cork also polishes the surface of the outer cover. If the cover has gotten rusty over time then the rust must be polished off (not using the cork) so that you don’t get premature wear on the cork.
