    When looking at the tranny from the tail shaft there is a small (approx 1/8th inch) hose exiting the case up by the bell housing in the 2 oclock position. Anyone know what this is for or what will happen if I plug it up. Thanks, Dave

    If you would like to see tranny fluid puking out of the dipstick tube, onto the headers creating a fire so you can see "dripping firey lava" off your headers... then go ahead and plug that vent tube. :crazy:
    When that vent gets clogged it will puke out of the dipstick and start a fire, ask me how i know.

    If i were you id extend that hose and make a vent for it somewhere up high in the engine compartment. maybe blow through that hose and make sure it is clear also, so that the tranny vent is working proplerly.
