    My TH350 has been leaking so I snugged down the pan bolts. From closer inspection I can see that my TV cable is leaking ATF??? I thought it was leaking from where it is bolted to the trans, but it's actually leaking from the cable??

    I know this does not help but I don't think t350 have TV cables they have kick down cables

    cable broken??

    Unless its broken,you dont need a cable..there is an "O" ring under where it slides in the tranny case..that 10mm bolt holds the cable in..in most cases you can take the cable off and put it back without pulling the pan off the tranny..I made a gasket from a peice of an old inner tube for one stubborn leaky cable I had in one of my TH350's..that stopped the leak after putting a new "O" ring in didn't help..:crazy:
