There is indeed an O-ring behind the shift lever. You have to unbolt the shift lever, remove the safety switch, and you'll see the seal on the shaft. Replace the seal and reinstall the safety switch and linkage. You will need a small drill bit or length of small rod to align the safety switch. You place the drill bit into the hole of the switch and then install it on the trans. Tighten it all up and remove the drill ***
