JD 2940 trans leak

RL My 2940 has developed a problematic oil leak from the seals of the load control shaft. I have installed a complete repair kit which includes the SHAFT, BUSHINGS, SEALS(new style quad ring), and O-RINGS for the bushing housings. The bushings were installed with the seal lands outward as from the factory.

We hooked up the plows to give it a test run and now get about 3-4 oil drips per minute. The new shaft and seals have been miked and re-checked for damage during installation and were found to be in perfect condition. I'm at a loss on this one. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance!

ross How much play is in the tug arm that hook up to the load control shaft. You need to take all of the play out of the housing with shims to have a better chance at getting them from leaking.
RL I'll check the clearance again, but I believe that it was within specs as per the shop manual.
(About .025") I"ll re-check though. Thanks!
