    in order to fill up the t-case, there is a fill-plus thats 1 3/16th. only place i could find that bastard size was at sear, good old craftsman. then u gatta find a way to get the fluid in there. i guess this is only of the only advantages to have a t-case drop. i agree, ur seal is spent.

    will this make my tranny feel bad? like not enough pressure and it feels sluggish? would that be caused by that?

    Auto trans run on fluid, nothing mechanical for actual drive (fluid operates the clutches etc) so if all your trans fluid is pumping into your t/case you'll be losing trans pressure and power.

    Could one just add extra fluid and let it go? The presure from the tranny would keep the fluid from interchanging with the tcase.... it should be ok to run any tcase on tranny fluid.. not the best but it would work.
