I have had the solenoid seals leak. My trans guy and I couldn't find a source to buy new ones either. I have 3 solenoids all from the same manufacturer and each has a different type seal. I ended up using a seal from a solenoid what was damaged beyond repair to fix my spare that dripped. RM

scotch bright the sealing surface and clean it and check for sharp edges and install one with fresh orings

i have never seen a TB solenoid that didnt leak or seep to some extent. I just assumed it was normal. I have never talked to a fellow racer that didnt have the same problem either. I suppose seeping is different then leaking though!!

TCI brake and paper gasket = no leaks for me........as long as I remember to tighten the solenoid when im putting the trans together........Couldn't figure out why my lights were all over the place until I noticed the leak.
