One of the leaks I found on my H many years ago, was coming from the dip stick tube, where it meets the transmission housing. The fluid leaked there and followed the flange, so it appeared to be leaking from the pan gasket. Two gaskets later I noticed the leak at the base of the tube. A couple shots of Brakecleen, and a smear of silicon fixed it. It still leaked at the shift cable, but at least one leak was fixed.

would love to know the answer to that one. My G doesn't leave a drop anywhere if you use it at least once a week, but when I put it away for an extended period of time (like winter storage) I need to put a good sized pan underneath, because after a couple of weeks, suddenly a small flood of fluid appears. I'm assuming it is half the fluid leaking back out of the torque converter and then the level rises above where it should be in the main body of the trans, and leaks out somewhere like the downshifting/kickdown shaft that only has a (relatively) loosely fitting bushing around it, since fluid is never supposed to reach that high up.

What internal repairs can be done to prevent the converter to leak down ?

Mick & all:
As I recall from my PowerFlite leakage problem, it could not be fixed until repairs were made internally to prevent the torque converter from draining down and flooding the system beyond what it was designed to hold.
Just $0.02 (maybe less) worth.

Thanks for all the offers of parts and suggestions about the shirt cable. After I read all the replies I've decided to get it on a lift and see if is just a really bad leak that can be fixed with the heat tube suggestion.
If it turns out that it needs a new cable I now have leads on several used and maybe a source for a new one.
Thanks again everyone.
