<VV> leaking Transmission

There is the gasket between the differential and transmission, then there 
is a seal for the pinion shaft on the powerglides.  The lip seal can fail. 
It can be seen on page 123 of Clarks catalogue, #20, P/N C3363.  I have 
seen this happen twice.  I completely shredded the guts out of the 
differential in my 61 long ago when this went bad and I did not notice it. 
The Ring and Pinon does not like ATF fluid as a lubricant.    Don't let 
them drive it as long as its doing it. Makes quite a mess when the Ring and 
Pinion go!
