Lots of fluid lost, looks too thin for Manual trans fluid.

So, I went to the metal supply house to pick up some steel, and on the way back (only 3 miles away) the (manual trans) started puking oil out the front of the trans/behind the engine. The oil seems rather thin, but has a lot of brass in it, which leads me to believe it is the synchros. I am just trying to figure out if this is common for them to puke out the front like this, and if so, do I need a full rebuild? (still shifts fine, just noisy) or can I just put in new synchros. Either way, who is a good supplier for parts for this ZF Transmission? Thanks for any help. Anything in particular I should be looking for? The truck is a 95 Ford F-Superduty (450) Dually.

Ok, I just got under there for a closer look... I found that the forward bearing is blown apart, and it put a hole in the front of the case. The bearing carrier looks fine, so my next question is, can I put a new bering in it, and have the case welded? (vice versa of course) Or am I better off just getting another case? The hard parts all look good, and it seems to be fine other than the obvious! Thanks for any help.

My guess would be new case. The case is cast and that is a SOB to weld.
Try NADP.

There are others but I think Barry is your best bet!

Manual Tranny noise.

I have a noise that started to show up last week. I only hear it when it's in gear & coasting. I do not hear it when in neutral, clutch is in or in gear under a load. Only when in gear & coasting. The noise is a loud metalic "click......click......click" every other second or so. Starting to get me a little worried. Any idea's??? It's a 1995 F350 7.3 powerstroke turbo w/ manual tranny, 2WD dually.
