Post TH-350 gone bad

last night on my way home, i noticed a slight clicking noise from my car. i tried to hear the sound again after at cruising speed(1800@55mph) no luck, the engine would drown out all noises. anyway, approximatly 10 miles later the rpm suddenly jumped and the car slowed down.i shiffted to nuetral and coasted a bit, put it back in gear, nothing. no 1st, 2nd, 3rd. not even reverse after i found a safe place to pull over. what happend?? i now have a puddle of fluid coming out of the speedo cable. did something let go? if so, how can i prevent this from happening again? this car is my pride and joy.1984 pontiac with a BUILT 327, and a ford 8.8 rearend.a gear change is in the future; something better than 2.73.something else,about 3 months ago the pinion bearing got turned into powder, needless to i had to replace the rearend,(3.90gears to a 2.73 ) did the rearend have something to do with it? i wasn't moving more than 15mph when it locked up. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" /> <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

I have burn`t up plenty of auto`s in my time. Pull the dip stick and smell if it is burnt. I buy auto trannys from the wrecking yard for $75.00. I have a friend install a shift kit with all new seals and filter. I have had good sucess with this method of replacement on trannys. This is a good time to replace the rear main seal, when the tranny is out.
