    Transmission leak stopper

    This is a common ABS kitchen sink drain tailpiece,shortened and "capped" by inserting a circle of plastic cut out of a butter tub. TTransmission leak stopper-100_4003.jpgClick image for larger version.

ID:	12739he end of the tailpiece is exactly 1 1/2"OD and about 1/8" wall thickness. The cap is sealed with "GOOP" It fits great in tailshafts of my GM transmissions and prevents that messy leaking that always happens either in removing,installing,moving or storing your transmission.Simple and cheap and does the trick for me.
