Please help!
The gasket between my TC and Tranny started gushing tranny fluid.....
The dang nuts were loose as all get out.
I have a new (rebuilt) tc I am putting in.
My question is.....Am I supposed to have that much fluid between my tranny and tc? Is there a rear seal that is supposed to keep the fluid out of this space?

If the bolts were loose, you may have cracked the adapter housing or the trans itself. Check everything very closely for fractures.

Yea. There is fluid between there. Only a seal on the tcase input, nothing on the trans output
