TCI Streetfighter II Tranny Leak

I am fairly new to the hot rod community. I purchased my first rat rod about six months ago. It is a 1959 Apache with a 383 stroker and a TCI Streetfighter II 3 speed automatic tranny. I have a leak that is coming from above the pan on the front corner on the passenger side. Thanks for any help.

It's probably the dipstick tube the o-ring. JMO
Or it can be where the cable hooks into the trans on that side also. JMO

Welcome to the site!!!

Yep, I agree, dipstick tube seal. I had to replace my $$$ Lokar with a $$ Hughes to get mine to stop, also a TCI trans.

New seal, new pan gasket and possibly some sealing washer under flange head bolts should stop the drip. Also, that TCI pan might not have a flat bolt flange as I also found
