Re: FC 150 transmission leak
The more I think about your lack of power: I would guess a broken ring. The amount of oil in the transmittion would not effect power. All the oil does is lubercate the gears to prevent wear and heat. If it is a broken ring you will also have less power in 1 st and 2 d gears but it is not as evident. Try it in a steep incline. does it have a lot of power in the lower gears. If it does not then it is a broken ring. The more you drive it the broken ring will score the cylinder walls so the motor will have to be bored and new Pistons installed.
So my new restored FC is leaking fluid from the trans. Could low fluid be the cause of power loss in 3rd gear after it warms up?
