Well I picked my Teryx up from having the motor built, clutch installed, etc and I get home and for some reason my front diff is leaking...I have a feeling it is the seal, but cannot understand why the leak just appeared out of nowhere, heck the machine has not been driven for how long. One thing I did notice is the e-brake was engaged when I was towing it home, but I would not think that could do anything.

Crap!!

It does seem a bit bizarre that it would just start leaking. Would the lift be creating some of the issue?

Not really sure my friend, we were kinda thinking that the seal dried out from not being driven in months and when the really got on it during the dyno run, it cracked it or something.

My pals at FST Motorsports is going to look at it tomorrow.

DP put some miles on that Teryx. You were a long way from 100 hours and the contest time is going to expire. :D

I am thinking they did not take the front drive shaft out...I wonder if that is what happened?

I don't know if it was something I did with the cable going to the 4wd actuator or it simply does not like the rear wheels spinning that fast and long with the front wheels not spinning. I think now since you are having this problem that heat builds up.

Spoke to the engine builders today...they said that they did in fact take the front drive shaft off for the exact reason you stated above. They too had another Teryx that wanted to just into 4x4 so they just decided to remove the front drive shaft for now on.

I just ordered a new seal today, we will get it taken apart the next few days and figure out what happened.
