Hello, why was the trans rebuilt in february, what failed? What are badshoe specs? It keeps blowing a front seal?

Hello, do you need more help with this concern?

Expert:  Gary replied 4 months ago.

Hello there,

Sounds like the front pump bush has too much clearance.

The seal cannot keep the oil in, if the snout of the convertor is not supported correctly,

Ie sloppy bush.

Who rebuilt the transmission?

You should take it back to them.

Hello again,

The could also be a problem with the oil pump.

Could be a mismatch of convertor to flexplate, is this all stock or modified in some way?
