It is a blue type of plug that is on the drivers side on a turbo 350, just near where the shift linkage connects to transmission.

Bill did the transmission come out of your car or out of another car? I remember someone on here a few years back as running a 350 that had the option to lock up the convertor so that could be the case here.

Sounds like you're describing the vent plug. I can't see the attached picture clearly. Is it an electrical plug? Probably a th350c with lock-up converter?

The picture is not my tranny, but the blue plug / connection is the same as in my car.. The trans came in the car when I bought it a couple of years ago. I have a feeling this must be a new transmission 1978 +.
Sorry for the bad pic I will get an actual one later on. It looks like a electrical connection but unable to get a good look as it is hard to see in the car. Will try to get a mirror to see what's on top of it. Thanks guys

Turbo 250C from 79 thru 84 and turbo 350C from 79 thru 84 used this plug for the TCC control wiring. Its used for convertor lock-up and the computer electrical-mechanical control system.

OK so I don't have anything hooked up to this? Advantages or disadvantages .

Not using the lock-up function will not hurt the transmission BUT why not hook it up to utilize the lock-up feature at cruise. B&M makes a wiring kit for this. "NOTE" Lock-up and non lock-up toque converters are not interchangeable, must use the torque converter for the style trans

Is there a way to figure out what converter is in there or does it have to be takin out?
Does locking up the converter really help and is it worth it. New to this.

You have to take off the torque converter. A non lock-up converter will not fit all the way on to the input spline There is a extension to the input shaft that has a "O" ring on the end. Locking up the converter gives about 1 to 3 MPG's. Tranny runs cooler a bit as well.

Just to up date, this plug is for a lock up converter. Don't be afraid to pull this out as I found out it has a replaceable O ring. Replaced the o ring and no more leaks. :)
