Is the grove for the oring cut into the case or is it on the adjusting screw?
Thanks,
Greg

Have you had any problems with the Reid case itself ? I switched from stock case and made no other changes and now this thing is hot all the time. Had it looked at by a good trans guy said there is a passage in the case that isnt drilled all the way like it should be, have you seen this ?

Our JW Ultra case leaked no matter what we did. A 1/4" NPT tap and 1/4" NPT plug fixed it.  :-$

I'm following this thread pretty close as I am thinking about buying a Dedenbear/Reid case this winter. In my altered I am fully exposed to the transmission even with a shield.

Before it got new case 150-160 max all day  new case now 200-210 in 2 passes.  Trans guy is as good as it gets he is baffeled as I am, we went ahead and put a new good pump in it (had a blueprinted stock in it before) same problem. Raced it a few weeks took it back out, it has never everything but gear set now and still same issue. Leaned towards converter, I have 2 spares put both in and both same issue. Gave converter to a buddy to try never got over 150 with his setup.  Several local trans guys are lost on what to fix now. Only thing we havent changed now is the cooler and back to a different case.  Of course this was not a issue before the case was changed ?? very confusing
