I'm a bit confused,..I know it doesn't take much for me now a days,...but if I understand the oil is leaking only or more so on the jiffy.
If that's the case there wouldn't be any oil at the inner primary bearing seal.



Had the same thought Mark.  Just figured if was in far enough to do some of it would be replacing all the seals anyway.  If you're in that deep why not?

You're absolutely right once that inner case is removed for the sake of  2.50  put a new one in

Yes definitely when you remove the primary it's good practice to replace all shaft seals (including shifter shaft), especially if they are older.  On my '02 the seal designs have all been updated.
