Post There she blows

I put a 350 chevy engine and a 400 turbo transmission in my 47 Ford sedan . The transmission seemed to work fine and then it blowed enough fluid out the dip stick that it would not pull anymore . (I did not have to much in it ) It's a brand new transmission but it has been setting for over a year . My question is : Could something be stopping up the vent tube causeing this to happen ? Also the transmission started making a noise after I put in the fluid the first time . It was quite as a mouse until I put in about 4 qrts . I haven't driven it down the road just in and out of the shop . That's as far as it will go before it blows out the fluid . Thankfull for any help !! Ron

I once had a 400 turbo do the same thing, a mud wasp built a nest in the vent tube while the trans was in storage.

Could be a cracked or other wise leaking filter tube. that will turn the fluid to foam, so will adding too much fluid to where it contacts the gear train and gets stirred up, and obviously too low a fluid level will have the same effect. And the vent tube as mentioned.
