If it doesn't leak so badly that it comes out faster than you can fill it, just add to the level plug and call it done.

Okay, so I don't remember. But where in NM are you?

Okay, too far to drive a FLU over here, but not all that far with a road worthy vehicle, either.

Post some pics, would you, and maybe give me/us an idea of what you expect to do with your SEE.
Have you started reading the lengthy but very informative "Owners" thread yet?

Strong hint, download the operations manual and read it. Next go through the operational inspections and lube routines. Unimogs are built quite heavy duty but only if they are maintained. Definitely drain the portal axles and refill them with the appropriate gear oil. Make sure you understand what the level plus is ans the fill plug.

One of the things you should also check before tipping the cab and diving into that project is the shifter bushing. It is the bushing that the shifter rides in and they do deteriorate with time causing the shifter to sit to low in the collar and then the shifter doesn't engage the shifter forks properly. You can get to it by pulling up on the rubber boot housing from inside the cab and then from the side sticking your hands in through the passenger side it will have a metal collar the detents down and putting downward pressure and turning it I think counterclockwise and it will let you release the shifter (BTW you need to disconnect the 3 airlines for downshift lever if you want to pull it completely out). You should have two guide pins on the inside of the transmission collar and they have to be removed to get the bushing out. Hope it helps

I have the same issue with my MOG, starts up by not going forward, do you know where the thread is located on this forum that tells you with pics how to replace the bushings without tilting the cab? I found it a few months back and not able to find it now. Thank you. I remember it to be a very long post.

Hello Coolhandmatt, I have just joined the 419 club, and after about 25 miles, my shifter became wobbly and will not go in to 2nd and goes poorly into the other gears. I can still drive it but it is obviously not right. I am basically in the same predicament as Watchman7 above.
I think that I too have a bushing problem. Of course, I should like to fix it without tipping the cab which seems like an ordeal. Are there any pictures available showing this procedure? And do you have to disconnect the three air lines to change the bushing. I can't even figure out how to disconnect these lines. It seems that you have to have small dexterous hands to do this. I did go ahead and order the bushing from TI

Your thread from 2016----I was only able to access this thru goggle search as it is no longer in the steel soldiers thread. And is there a TM that addresses this issue?
Thanks for you help.
