OIL IN MY HANDBRAKE DRUM?

The output shaft seal on the back of the transfer box, and no I don't I am afraid... but I am fairly sure almost all LT230 output shaft seals are only one or two different numbers so it shouldn't be hard to find.

You'll also want a new set of handbrake shoes, forget trying to clean them, it doesn't really work properly and oil tends to come out of the linings over time.

Any damage is probably already done. The leak may get worse but once

the linings are contaminated there's not much else to break and the hand

brake will eventually be as effective as a chocolate teaspoon.

On the upside, it's an easy job to to. Couple of hours max. Prop off then

two screws to release the drum. May have to slacken the adjuster off.

Big nut releases prop flange and IIRC four bolts on the oil catcher thing.

Prise the seal out and that's it. If you work quickly not much oil will be lost

but if you don't know when it was last changed it's worth draining anyway.

As above, shoes are hard to clean and only about £15 so replace them.
