Transmission Fluid Leak at Speedo Cable Housing
I have 69 LeMans 350 with a TH-350 Transmission. I have a tranny fluid leak from where the speedo cable connects to the speedo gear housing. I replaced the gaskets but I am still having a leak. I have also checked the tranny fluid level cold and hot, to make sure I have the correct amount. Here is what I have observed:
*I do not see any leaking tranny fluid from the speedo cable connection immediately after driving the vehicle
*The next morning, there is a small puddle of fluid under the car and it comes from where the speedo cable connects to the speedo gear housing.
I have ordered a new driven gear (36 tooth) and driven gear housing which I plan to install next week to see if that solves the problem. If it does not, I plan to next replace the speedo cable. I am baffled as to why I don't see the leak immediately after driving. Any one with a similar experience? Any thoughts?
