Re: Type 3 tow bar


I remember hearing the same type of thing from my father.  He had 
mentioned heat as the primary reason.  This would in turn harden the 
seals and then they would crack and spew fluid.
        On an IRS suspension remove the drive axles.  You wouldn't be 
able to on a swing axle car though.

drive shaft (impossible on a Type 3) the turning wheels will force fluid
through the tranny.  After 30 miles the fluid will either heat up and be no
good or will cause the seals to blow.  I don't remember the specifics but
that is the gist of the message I have gotten when I asked that question
myself.
