I had a very reputable shop do my gears. I’m having some seepage of oil through the gasket on both front and back. It’s not enough to drip. But basically the gasket looks shiny and if you run your finger on it. There’s some oil. After three months my reservoir is still full so it’s not a major leak. The installer offered to redo it free of charge but mentioned it may not get better than that. Also that he prefers the gasket maker gunk and said I could have my choice. What do you guys think. Are you seeing some minor seepage after a gear swap? If I go back in do we use new gaskets or re use current gaskets.

There should be zero seepage. I am not sure what gaskets would be best, but it should all be bone dry.
