    Default Update transmission leak

    So I posted yesterday about my stripped transmission pan bolts and the leak. I got started today and when I got everything apart it looked like the tranny filter was loose. Should the bolt that holds up the filter hold it in place snugly? I have a 1975 with a TH400 transmission. Thanks for any input.

    Heindrich, (obviously) I've moved this to the tech section. Seems better suited for the techies out there.

    Default trans question

    Bolt that holds filter on gets tightened snug. Filter itself will move up and down as per chevys design.

    I guess I worded my question wrong, I was'nt sure why the filter had play in it but you answered my question. Thanks.

    What a freakin' pair, you're a fortunate guy. And the paint job on that 'Vette is TOO TOUGH. And up there in the colder climate where beautifully painted rides are kept in during the winter months. I know, I grew up in New York and keeping the paint in good condition, especially on a dark colored job, is a chore or consists of keeping the ride in the garage unless the weather is cooperating, about three months a year. It's actually an easy task out here in Central Texas.
    I just replied to admire your car. My best to you and your's.
