Arthur, no deal on the tranny. About the ball studs I find they appear tight BUT the one for the #4 intake rocker opens through the head above the #4 spark plug pocket and oil is visible coming through the threads of the ball stud. Although the other five intake studs are not leaking, the six ball studs for the exhaust valves may leak. They too appear tight, but they open into the inlet ports which are under vacuum. I guess I will have tu pull the head to seal leaking ball studs.
