leaking th400

i have a th400 that is fitted with a trans brake { tci}. it has a leak coming from around the bellhousing of the box, it will only leak after accelerating hard,, at the end of the strip it has puked enough fluid to catch fire on the header.the fluid is not coming out of the vent on top of the box, i have a catch can for that.. it seems to come out around the front right hand side,, i have been chasing this problem since early last year,,, any help and advice would be appreciated.. george

dried out 0-ring on the dip stick tube? Cracked dipstick. Fluid pushed up the dip stick tube? Loose cooler line, cracked cooler line. All of those are on the RF of the trans.

cooler lines are both perished, does the pressure in these lines rise under hard acceleration, i ask because neither leaked when the car was idling , but when i used the air line both were porous at the junction with the box...
