I can tell from my shed floor that the Cub 106 is leaking liquid gold (HyTran) from the trans/diff area. I plan to fix it soon but I would like to have some idea of what is likely to be the cause and how much effort it will take to repair the problem. I'm sure I won't be inventing the wheel here. Thanks in advance.

Knowing where about's of the leak is coming from or what side may be of some use for folks to help you better..  The usual culprit is the brake seal.  Next up is the input shaft seal..  Pressure wash the case then look for the leak source then you will know..

Well since it has external disc brakes I don't think it even has a brake seal. I will give it a bath and put down some fresh cardboard to see if I can narrow down the leaking area.

Does it have a PTO kit on it?  If so that may be it as well..  Those things are tanks..

No PTO kit, just mule drive and mower deck. I'm not loosing oil from the engine so I got a problem in the rear.

My guess would be one or both axle housing gaskets between the housings and main ccase or the rear cover plate gasket.

Wipe everything off real good to assist in finding the leak. If you still can't find the leak, dye kits are available at any auto parts store, and they work very well.

The rear cover is easy peezy, the housing gaskets are somewhat easy to do too.
