Tips on C-4 Rebuild

I have rebuilt this 70 Mustang from the ground up, but I tried to cheat on the transmission and I lost. So the car is done and on the road, but puking trans fluid bad when it warms up. So I ordered a TCI rebuild kit and the cars is back up on stands so I can pull the the trans. I'm thinking theres a crack somewhere that opens up when it's hot. I can drive about 10 miles before it lets loose. Pump? Torque Converter? I have another spare that might be able steal parts from if I find something damaged.

My buddy Irelands Child has given me some pointers on doing the rebuild and I have a factory manual that covers it pretty good. But I'm all ears as this is the first automatic I've ever rebuilt. This is like the last frontier for me as I've done everything else from paint and body to engine rebuilding to interior to EFI, so I might as well face my fears and do a transmission now too.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
