My sympatheties to Stu. On my M38A1 I have the same problem. I've
replaced the oil pan gasket, the transmission bottom gasket, and the transfer
case output yoke oil seal; all to no avail as I am still leaking oil onto
the garage floor. I took the kids to an air show and saw that they put large
pans underneath the engines to catch all the oil dripping from the vintage
military aircraft; so I took the hint. I made up a pan and place it under
the bell housing after I put the jeep to bed, so at least I have a clean
floor. The only other solution I can think of is a .45 armor piercing round
into the engine block, but then I have to replace the engine block, so I'm
stuck with the pan.
