TH350 overfill help?
Hi guys, I finally got my 72 Chevelle running, with a brand new TCI Super Streetfighter TH-350 transmission. Since the trannny is new, and it's got new fluid in it, it was so clean that I couldn't tell if it was full or not on the dipstick, so I overfilled it by about a quart (or maybe a more). As I was adding the fluid, I realized my mistake as I saw fluid running out on the ground on the passenger side (this was yesterday afternoon). Since then, it's continued to slowly leak/drip, coming from somewhere around the cooling line connections. I checked the fluid first thing this morning, and it was well over the "Full hot" line on the dipstick, and it had leaked a spot about the size of 2-3 dinner plates on the ground overnight. One other observation, it doesn't seem to drip when the engine is running, which I figure is because the fluid is circulating and the static level isn't as high.
Anyway, long story short, I'm just looking for a little reassurance that it's just the tranny being overfilled. I need to check that the cooling line connections are tight, but I'm pretty sure they are (can't turn by hand at least, and I checked them again when installing before I put the headers on, also doesn't seem like the tranny would drip with the engine off out of the cooling lines). Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
