Read a lot of posts in the past that saved me much troubleshooting time but never asked any questions directly. I am sure someone has seen this issue before, I have a M35a3 that I recently purchased and the speedo has oil puddling in the the bottom of the window. I am fairly certain there is oil coming up the cable on longer drives but can't seem to find an image in the parts manual that shows a seal or p/n for one at the transmission end of the cable. Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have this issue as well, is the speedo cable supposed to have oil in it for lubrication and a seal on the speedo failed? Either way my speedo stopped working all together recently so I will likely be replacing both.

If your T-case is the same as an M35A2 (forgive me, I know the A3 has the Allison Auto, but I'm not certain what t-case they have)...

Given that your speedo has been pumped full of oil, you might also want to make sure the lube level in your t-case isn't too high, as well as making sure the vent on your t-case isn't plugged.

Thank you, I will check on all you have suggested.
