Well, pardon me, you backed up 1,380 feet and fried the front seal. How fast did you go. The 722.3 has a rather low gear ratio for reverse, so unless you had it floored (I hope not), I can't see how you trashed the front seal. Just suppose you drove into the woods on a narrow road and found yourself a mile or so into the forest. if you consulted your owner's manual, would it tell you to avoid narrow roads or forests. If you kept the rpms reasonable, I can't see how you could destroy the front seal, unless it was scheduled to fail anyway and you found it in your heart to finish it off. BTW, I have never heard of a seal in a tranny melting from sitting at idle. I suppose it's possible, but I suspect that if it did happen, a lot of other things would be melting as well. I think someone is blowing smoke up your to speak..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
