Thanks BP. Spoke with him and went through the issue. Pretty obvious I wil need to pull it to replace seal and take it to him. Now looking for someone in the area to pull it for me. Beyond my scope of ability.

Thanks again BP. Mike referred me to someone who referred me to someone else and I ended up talking to Transmission Marine in Fort Lauderdale which, I have read, is one of the heavy weights in BW VD transmissions. They put me in touch with an older retired type guy who still works for/with them part time. He is coming out to look at it on Friday. If we pull it I am going to have to find some 25-ish guy who lifts weights to help. Darn, where is RT Firefly when I need him???

Good luck with it. We got stuck in Lake Worth last December with the same problem.
Just count your lucky stars that you are not at Riviera Beach Marina or you may not have enough left for a transmission rebuild
