New oil pan and transmssion identifcation
I bought a truck at auction and it needs some work.
So I was poking at some rust on the bottom of the oil pan and now it is leaking pretty heavy. It looks like it has been leaking for a while; the whole bottom of the bell housing is covered. I was looking for other common places for leaks that may need fixed while I change the oil pan. The valve covers are bone dry and the top half of the bell housing is dry.
From reading other posts I know that the real main seals can be a problem, so my question is, if that was also leaking where would that oil be running down.
What is covered in oil is the pan, the bottom of the bell housing, the bottom of the starter, and the front of the inspection plate on the trans. I'm just trying to tell if the oil is all from the pan, or if I have multiple issues.
Attached are pics. Also, since I haven't driven the thing since I bought it, can anyone tell me if the trans is a 4 or 5 speed auto from the pic? I can't get a good look at the numbers on the side if it.
