    Nothing normal ever breaks on my truck. On my th400 tranny, driver side, right before the t-case adapter, there is what looks like a freeze-plug. rusted out, and started pissing atf from the center. Anyone know if this is really just a freeze plug? If it is, what size and where I can get one? You guys are my last hope. The parts store guy just laughed. Thanks again! :grin:

    freeze plug. any tranny shop or just pop out and measure hole and go to auto shop like napa, carquest. and ask for that size plug. easy to fix.

    Tranny shop!

    It might be the cover for the Accumulator Piston he's looking for???or the govenor??(I dont recall any freeze plugs on any of my TH400's,but I never paid close attention either! :blush: )--a tranny shop will probably have it,regardless of what it is,if it is the accumulator piston cover,there is a strong spring under it,and you might need the special tool to remove and intall it..might not be easy to do at home in the driveway... :crazy:

    good call but as he said its 4x4 and driver side. in that thay had no speedo and put plug in the place of it. but make sure its that. and i would just go to tranny shop first.

    There`s no way there`s any kind of spring tension on that thing, it would have blown out by now in it`s condition. I`m going to just beat it out on my next day off. Thanks guys!

    uhm speedo is in tailshaft housing in which there would not be on 4x4 tranny this is why the speedos are in the TC's

    2wds run speedo, are in tailshaf housing, since 2wd use them and much longer output shaft



    good luck

    Well that and the fact that the speedo would read WAY high in low range if the reading came from the trans. :cool1:
