Your transmission is a 32RH and it doesn't have a vent on top, its vent is located on the front of the transmission near the top. You have to pull the tranny to get to its vent hole. I haven't done this to my 32RH but those who have done this sealed up the front vent hole and tapped the top of the transmission to insert a 3/8" barbed hose fitting. It's not easy but if you have the time, it's worth it if you wheel where the water gets deep enough. I'm lucky I don't have that worry since most of my wheeling is in the desert.
