there were also a few hard plastic pieces in the bell housing that looked like they used to be a seal.

that sounds like a good starting place [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] seriously, if it's pouring out that hole then it's not coming out of the vent, which leaves only the front pump seal as a place for a leak, assuming the convertor drain plug is not missing and it's not cracked, like you said. does there appear to be a seal where the convertor slides into the front pump? i don't have my rebuild manual here with me, but i wouldn't be surprised if that shaft just slides out. i assume it's the convertor clutch engagement shaft you're talking about? i've never pulled this e4od (yet!) so I'm not the best source for this info, but I guess I'll know for sure when I yank this pos out and replace it with a np435 [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
