    Don't know what i did today when i was wheeling but there is transmission fluid dripping pretty good out of the drain hole on the dust cover below the bell housing. I am assuming that the rear main seal is leaking. Am I right? I have never done one of these, are they a pain? It is an 88 with a 350 TBI and a 700r4. Any real procedure to do it? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks - Doug Krebs

    rear main seal is on the engine, isn't it? so I would think you should be seeing oil not tranny fluid.
