front gear case leak
Was given this bike and have developed a problem that I need advice on. On the l/h side of the bike are 2 chrome dust caps down low, the rear one covers the swing arm and the front one looks like the front drive gear case. The dust cap blew off and oil poured out. Looking inside with a flashlight revels an O-ring that is out of round and wrinkly, so I'm assuming that's where the oil is getting by. No bike shops in my area will touch a 1985 Vulcan VN750. Is this leak a common problem or am I up a creek without the proverbial paddle? No shops know where I can get parts and they couldn't care less anyway.
Any advice will be most gratefully received.
