Selespeed leak seemingly from the reservoir cap (not the breather)
Just purchased as used 147 Sele for my son (got it for a good price as there were known Selespeed issues).
When we picked it up, it would only engage 1st and 2nd. No R or 3,4,5. Found that there had been a massive leak of sele fluid from around the cap (rather than the breather pipe).
Refilled the selespeed reservoir with the right fluid, used the Fiatscan software to do some recalibrating and we now have a functioning selespeed (albeit with some not so smooth gear changes (esp 1st to 2nd). I know that I need to adjust pushrod length etc and will do that once I have solved the leak issue.
So my question is, does anyone have any experience with why the fluid would leak from under the cap rather than through the breather tube? Is this a sign of something different to the usual suspects (e.g. accumulator issues)?
