Hey guys,

On the way to the Ring I noticed some smoke coming from the gearbox (around the gear stick), I now know that the rubber seal cracked and vapor/smoke was leaking from the gearing. Has anyone else had the same problem on the R34? It seems to be a known issue so you might want to keep an eye on it.

Rubber seal

I had the same on my 32. Abbey sold me a pattern boot with a cable tie and I have not had the problem since.

Hi Dino,

I have not looked at the seal in detail so I cannot say exactly where or what it is, but far as I know their is a rubber seal close to the top of the gear housing. It seems it has been known to crack and some fluid escapes. Perhaps the Nissan standard part is at fault becouse both Abbey and Middlehurst use non-Nissan seals if they encounter the problem (I have heard of at least 3 Skylines). Or maybe getting Nissan parts is an issue?

I have had it aswell, and so have most of the owners I have talked too.

Mine puffed a few small clouds one journey then
nothing ever since.:confused:

It apears its a common Skyline fault despite different gearboxs.

I think the reason Abbey and Middlehurst use
the same non-Nissan part is a Mini CV gator
fits and is cheaper and easy to get.

Yep that was the problem

Mines already got the NISMO short shift kit on it, so whoever fitted it must have ****d it up.

And it was the second one that mounts onto the g/box. Ordered one from MM today. All oil every where!!

Heat of the transfer

Hi,

It is because of the overheat of the transfer.
It is the reason the UK-spec GTR34 has the transfer oil cooler.

Yours,
Shin
