Well, the overdrive unit has dextron(auto tranny fluid) in it but the tranny itself has 80 weight gear oil. Since the overdrive unit is well behind the bellhousing and is in effect the tail unit for the tranny I wonder how the dextron is leaking from the top of the bellhousing? Also, the overdrive unit has a fill plug in the side that can be taken out to check for overfilling...........

True, but the OD vents to the same tube as the 4 speed and then runs up along the bellhousing. That would be guess as to where it's coming from.

Think that he should pull the overdrive fill plug and check the fluid level, it might be over serviced.
