Ok I have found my problem.......

 

Looks like water is leaking from tranny shaft....I see water cascading down from the clutch area

 

So I found these seals

http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Shaft-Seal/356427/3176

 

 might as well replace both

 

I know how to take off the tranny  but I never have replaced any of these seals.....is this job difficult?

 

Thx for the input

Add water up to the  seal of the  support.......Leaking?????......
add more water up to the top of the basket drive...Leaking???????? ............. Main Gasket, easy to replace, just remove a few parts, ............

Add water up to the  seal of the  support.......Leaking?????..... A little bit

add more water up to the top of the basket drive...Leaking???????? YES a little more than the seal of the support

Main Gasket, easy to replace, just remove a few parts, ............

Basket drive comes with seals...........

Support has a seal kit but you need the seal assy install  tool.........do you have tool part #?

I would replace the support with a new unit.....not cost effective for me...can I just replace the seals only?

The seal/bearing install tool, the part number I cannot find...........It probably has been out of production for a while.............It is a threaded rod with washer type fittings to install the bearings down inside the support and then the seals on the ends..............never used the tool, seen it, but never used one........Just easier to purchase the support.......( wholesale pricing helps ).
