    Default 350 turbo tranny

    The speedometer cable going into my 1984 350 Turbo transmission is dripping a little fluid. How difficult is is to fix what ever is causing it to leak? Someone told me i could take the bolt out and remove the cable and there was a small O-ring that probably needs replacing.
    I was wondering if it is as simple to do as he made it sound? What else do I need to know and can I get the O-ring from the local parts store?
    Thanks for the advice...

    Yes, that's exactly how simple it is. I just did a transmission swap on my 1985 chev 4x4, the only difference is that my speedometer cable goes into my transfer case, but there is either one or two o-rings on it.

    Thanks to everyone,,,i will work on the speedometer when I get the pan and screen bolted back on.
    I wonder why GM didn't not think to put a drain plug on the tranny pans? It sure would make changing the screen and filter an easier job and in my case I would probably change it more often.

    Hopefully I can get the pan back on without leaks, have a great weekend..
