Is this the vent location on a 727? (pic)

Ok, I've always been told the vent on a 727 is in the bottom of the bellhousing. There is a pipe plug on one hole in the pic and an open hole that is threaded above the input shaft. Is the open hole the vent?

Or do you have to take the transmission apart to get to the vent. I searched and found a lot of info, but no picture of the actual vent. If someone wants to add an arrow to my pic that shows where the vent is I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Ryan

Yep, here's the vent. I plugged mine with an 1/8 pipe plug (Tapped it for 1/8 pipe first) then drilled behind the vent into the case and tapped it for a new vent line that I can attach a tube to. This obviously requires the pump to be removed completly so that you can get all of the metal shavings out of there.

Thanks.

I just looked at the transmission and that hole is actually not threaded.

Anything else really needed to waterproof the 727?

Yeah, yeah.

I'm definately an auto guy all the way.

Other than running a higher vent line, a transmission dipstick with a locking cap was all I could come up with. Oh, and using tread sealant on everything.

What I did on my 81 was use the dipstick tube from a van. Gets the end high and dry and it's easier to reach to check the fluid level.
