200 4r deep pan question

I have acquired a second deep aluminum pan for my stand by tranny, and I noticed that between the small and large pan pockets there is a thick wall. Could I drill a hole in this wall and relieve that fluid to pass to the large pan opening? Or is there a good reason not to do this? I saw a large steel deep pan that didn't have this pocket at all under the governor portion of the pan.

Yep, after studying it and talking to my brother, found out that it wouldn't do any good, because of the fluid depth to nearly the pan rail. The large steel pan uses the large single opening for fluid volume.

I drilled a 1/4" drainback hole, simply for whenever I need to remove the pan for maintenance...

I have now done the same thing. I guessing that there is half a quart of fluid that stays trapped and if I change things, i'll have to deal with that mess no matter what I do every time I change things. I'm going to put this pan on in a couple of days when I change my speed o gears. Then i'll drill the other pan after I clean up the mess, because I know that that half quart is going to drip a lot.
