C4 transmission fill tube

Question for ya'all,

Had my C4 rebuilt and I put it back into the car. Put the tranny fill tube in and it seems to slop around a bit. I put a new o-ring on the tube and it still slops. Can't get more than 5 quarts of fluid in the tranny, because it spills out of the housing where the tube goes in . Is there a way to expand the tube, or a rubber bushing that would seal this thing? Anybody else had this problem?
Thanks!

Are sure that its seated? You should use a scrap piece of wood to tap on with a mallet to seat it and it should bolt to the back of the head. If you put on a new rubber ring, then you may need a new filler tube.

Seems strange that its not leaking immediately when you first add fluid. It could be leaking from a cooler line and dripping down by the filler tube.

You could try to put some gasket sealer on it

Travis,
I tried some red rev but it wouldn't adhere to the aluminum housing very well. It still leaked.......

Aggisrok,
It is definitely all the way in, the ridge on the tube is touching the tranny housing....and it's still loose. I think you are correct in that ill needs new tube.
Thanks

Forgot to mention that it does indeed leak fluid as soon as I pour it in.

I agree aggie, make sure the tube is all the way into the casing. New o ring and tap it down good luck.
