Evo Trans leak behind primmary!

So on my '94 wide glide I got a tranny leak behind the primary, I am assuming the seal right behind the drive pulley. How big of a job is this and what special tools would be needed? Also are any nuts reverse thread? Plus if anyone knows the cost involved and what are the better seals and gaskets too use.

Thank fellas.

Tools: Special socket to remove front sprocket. (Super deep)

Clutch basket nut is reversed (lefthand) thread.

3-4 hour job.

Need to yank entire inner primary, clutch, compensating sprocket, starter (unbolt) and remove starter gear and jackshaft.

OEM gaskets/seals are fine.

And here I've been using a 1 1/2 inch socket on the comp sprocket. Didn't know it had to be super deep, I won't tell my socket, might hurt it's feelings.

I believe Dave is referring to the front final drive sprocket (trans pully).

You're probably right. Final drive socket is a super deep one.

We need to coin that phrase: Super deep socket.
