I have a '61 Seneca 4 door with a slant 6 and cast iron torqueflite. It's had a slow tranny leak for some time that I've put up with; I recently replaced the transmission pan gasket in hope of curing it. Still leaked a little...until I ran some errands the other day, parked it in the driveway, and came back out to a red river of fluid coming from what appears to be one of the front pan bolts. The bolt's not over or under torqued, so I'm beginning to think I may have a blown tranny seal. Any ideas of what I might check, how difficult a seal would be to replace, etc.? Any and all comments most welcome. Thanks, -David
