Loob fire mystery solved

Overfilled transmission?
That's my working theory as I cannot find any evidence of any other possible cause. There is seepage on the RH side of the transmission where the gasket joint is, and there is certainly evidence of burning on the exhaust pipe ( ashy residue ) but only in a small area next to the transmission. Guess with a warm transmission the oil was coming out the gasket and getting on the exhaust pipe? Guess I will never know for certain. But anyway at the moment it's all good.
Worked on the truck all day yesterday and today. 90% of the remediation is done and, except for the missing foam pad on the bulkhead and the bonnet pad, you'd hardly know it had anything happen to it.
