drive shaft 1954 Chev 3100

I recently bought a retstored 1954 Chev 1/2 ton 3100 with the 235/3speed. The seller said that the enclosed drive shaft gets lubrication from the transmission and that as time goes on you must drain some fluid from the rear end and add it to the transmission because the oil moves to the rear end. I have been noticing some oil on my drip pans that looks like transmission oil.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a '53 with a 216 and 3/spd. I don't remember the traveling gear lube. It doesn't really make much sense to me.

Doesn't make any sense to me either. I've got a 350/350 in my 54, with a mid-70s Chevy 12-bolt rear ... nothin' like that goin' on.

To the best of my knowledge, the only way you would have any gear lube inside the enclosed driveshaft (torque tube) is if the transmission rear seal was leaking and/or the pinion shaft seal was leaking. The seller is mistaken (that's putting it politely).
