I'm guessing someone just filled it to the top? That is likely why it is leaking

There's a little diagram on the trans case next to the gear, showing the speedo gear as a dipstick.
Most autoparts stores have a big 'ol suction syringe, I think I got mine for $20, would allow you to pull out exactly the right amount of fluid

$440 on MCP??? That's some next level shit there.

$44 on eBay, brand new.

Does not look like it's used by any other cars.

Have they bench tested it with a multimeter? Given the scarcity it's worth diagnosing for sure
Should be able to pop the metal cover off and service the bits inside, not too much can go wrong with them other than maybe a dirty contact

I may have one left in my horde if all else fails

When it's dead, does the tach needle bounce when cranking the engine?
How does the wiring to the distributor look?
Also check & clean the wiring under the fuse block under the hood, pull apart the harness connectors there and spray with contact cleaner. There's one in there that can cause a no-spark issue

modern capri says its a denso 061000-1000, ford E8GY12A646C, looking to help a Florida driver whose mechanic says that's what she needs... my stash is empty and no junk yards local with a Capri, so wondered if another junk yard car would be a donor...

Curious, how are you testing for spark? Are you putting a plug in a wire and watching while cranking?
You say you have 12v at the coil, is that with the key in the run position only, or with the key in both the run and crank positions?

Have you checked to be sure all the ground connections for the engine and computer are clean and secure?

I noticed a trans leak and when I pulled the speedo drive to check it, trans fluid squirted all over the place.  Way over full.  Has anyone experienced anything like this before?

I would imagine that the Protege and other Mazdas from that time period do. The Tracer may also use it. Got a part number?

Car stopped running 5 months ago, got a Code#1 so I bought a new ignitor, no luck so I bought 2 Rebuilt Distributors still no luck...Left the car set for several weeks and it started right up, Replaced each Distributor, 3 of them, the car would start right up on each distributor...Ran the car for several months no problems, in fact it ran great...The car decided to stall on me on the road, again no spark with a Trouble code #1..Tried all three distributors, no luck..obviously it's not the igniter causing this problem and I'm getting 12v at the Coil...
.any ideas on why this is happening..????..

Anyone know if use of the main relay is shared by any other car?
