Default converter leaking?

I just installed a Ford AOD and ive done this one other time and i always notice fluid leaks from inside the bell , down, and onto the floor. I filled the conerter 1/2 way with it standing up while on the floor. Is this converter leaking? Will it eventually stop after the overfilling is out?

sounds like the pump seal. Ideally the snout of the torque converter will sit inside the oil pump, with a series of O-rings preventing leakage.

Pump seal or the front input seal of the trans is leaking. Unless the shaft of the converter has some damage on it causing it to not seal around the input seal.

other possibility other then the front seal is the gasket behind the front pump itself. just ran into this problem in a C6 in a lincoln. change both and be done with it.
