So I have an ever enlarging puddle of trans fluid under the 77, the fluid appears to be dripping from the drain hole on the dust shield, but it is hard to say where it is originating from. I am going to tackle this job soon and am wondering where some areas to start may be. Thanks.

If it's coming from the front it's probably the front trans seal. Easy to change out but the pain is having to remove the trans first Undecided you might luck-out and it could be the pan gasket. Take your time and try to confirm the leak area. Clean, run engine, inspect for leaks. Repeat as needed to find leak. Good luck Smiley and let us know what was wrong Wink

  Remove the dust shield, and with a light you should be able to see if the leak is coming from the front pump seal. The trace leak should be seen on the pump dripping down................jack

I will keep that in mind, may have to wait until it warms up out there. I will take a few pics along the way, maybe it will help. Thanks for the advice, and would be real nice if just a pan issue. Smiley
