The joy of my new transmission swap hasn't lasted very long. My F23 is just pouring out transmission fluid when the engine is on.

It looks like it's coming from inside the bellhousing... so I'm guessing the it's the "main" seal or whatever it's called? If you have any suggestions, let me know... I can't even drive it anywhere without losing tons of fluid within seconds.

I don't know if the F23 is similar to the getrag in this aspect but I had a similar thing happen to me. The big plug that covers the detent mechanism popped out and leaked like crazy. Either way you gotta pull the trans

Coincidences happen.
Make sure it's not your rear main seal or cam seal.
If the back side of the flywheel and back of the engine are soaked it'll be on the engine side.

If the clutch and tranny are soaked, it'll be something on the tranny.

It's definitely tranny fluid, coming from behind the clutch area

I only hope you "pulled a wheelie" in the process, at least.

My F23 swap is still sitting half torn apart at a buddy's house... started in April, sigh. I hear ya. I have anxiety because of thoughts of things breaking on the first run...

Unfortunately the trans has to be pulled, in your case... but the input shaft seal is only 5-6 bucks and for Timken or SKF parts. Hard to beat, compared to the availability for HM-282 parts.

Not even close.

I was sitting in traffic the whole way home from work. Pulled off the highway to mail a package and I noticed a giant puddle under my car. Luckily I think the leak just started since I still had plenty of fluid and I was only seconds away from my house at that point. Just drove it the last 20 seconds home and it's been parked since. Definitely don't want to ruin this tranny as it is apparently low mile and has a LSD installed.

I can't help but think that you might have a busted case. Most clutch pressure plates come close to, or hit the differential bump and need some clearancing. Perhaps it poked through? Maybe rubbed through? Let's be honest, The amount of fluid supplied to the front bearing isn't much, and it doesn't usually decide to escape suddenly. The seals tend to decay over time.
