ExDementia Problems will be trouble shifting at first, some slipping maybe but it will just ruin everything if you let it go. It just ruins the oil in there, turns it into milky crap.

yjwes the breather may just be a hole in the bell houseing so if you sink the trans in water it will flood

Another good Idea would be an electric fan that you can turn off when you're about to go deep in the water. The stress of that thing trying to turn while completely submerged can't be good and a fan will also bring more water into the engine bay.

Do you have an automatic? They are vented inside the bell housing and WILL let in water.

Are you worried about your cab being waterproof too?

It takes alot of work to do this, you really need to decide if its worth it or not.

I think with enough work you could get some propulsion and float the darn thing with this

But seriously, I was recently thinking on ways to make the water get out faster after it gets in into the cab, any cool mods there?

ExDementia If thats the case than a good snorkel is all you should need
