1961 3 speed trans
Hi All and thanks in advance for any info you can provide. I have a 61 88 with the hydro 3 speed trans. It seems to work fine but spitts trans fluid out the dip stick tube. Is this a normal issue with this trans as I have been told and/or is a fix available? The car has the stock 394 and trans.

Re: 1961 3 speed trans
Check the fluid level with the engine hot and running. If you checked it cold it could be overfilled, the level comes up quite a bit once the trans warms up.
There is supposed to be a rubber plug or baffle near the top of the dipstick to prevent spitting.
Also you could check the vent is not plugged up. There may be a vent on top of the trans, at least some transmissions have them, not sure about your Jetaway.
