That seal in the picture is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace.
Many of the TR3650's were overfilled from the factory so you might try draining the transmission and refilling it with precisely 3.2 quarts of a high quality, Mercon compatible, synthetic automatic transmission fluid.

Rear seal. There is a puller you need to do it and it can be done with the trans in the car. Unsure how much the puller costs but I know you can borrow/rent it from a user on the corral, just forget his SN.

All you have to do is drop your drive shaft. There are 4 12 point 12mm bolts that hold it onto the rear diff in case you didn't know. You will have a much easier time with them if you have an extender, a swivel, and then the socket.

He needs an actual rear seal puller though, for the tailshaft seal. You can't just dig it out with a screwdriver or something. Ford makes it but its like $100+. You can rent them if you know where to look. Either way its still better than taking it to a shop. Or maybe not... could always find a local mechanic and tell him exactly what needs to be done and say you are providing parts and just need the install.
