Merchant or somewhere else has just the seal but the harness can be done just as easy. Only place I found in town for the whole harness was transtar near down town. Otherwise amazon is your best/cheapest (rockauto might be too).
I've been trying to find how the Merchant seals work. Looks like they offer just a seal, and a seal with internal connector body. Can't find videos or instructions for installation on either one...connector body obviously goes on from inside the pan, but does the seal install from the outside? If I don't have to open the pan I won't...but if I do have to open the pan, I need a new gasket and might as well do the internal filter as well.
yeah pan has to come off for you to change out the harness. its really simple though, just do it when its back in the truck. use a big socket to collapse the clips that holds the connector into the trans and knock it out. think its like a 30mm or something that fits it.
Just wanted to say nice to see someone else on north valley area... I am at grovers and 44th st.... I have a tech 2 if someone ever needed help...

pics show the bellhousing rrreeeallll wet around where it mates to the trans. sure its not leaking at the top and coming down?
Poked around with the borescope again today. Looks like the two I circled above, along with the two that take the copper washers, are all leaking. What the hell. @Mike L. have you seen this happen before? Was 42lb-ft not enough torque?
Bolts pictured below are numbered as in this pic:

maybe copper washers for all 4? I wouldn't think any should leak if the gasket is seated right on the plate? I didn't look into my tranny with a camera before I pulled as I don't have one but there was 2 lines around the inside of the bellhousing where it almost looked as if oil was being sprayed off the torque convertor
