Do I Have a Transmission Problem?

On Friday my mechanic pulled the parking brake housing to do a rebuild. He took it to his shop to do the work. Since Friday morning I have lost at least a quart of transmission fluid that has leaked into the absorbent pads stuffed around the spline and under the transmission back end to catch anything. I have a bucket under everything to catch what the pads might not get and there is a small amount in the bucket. I'm pretty sure it should not do this with the parking brake drum removed. I suspect there is a seal leaking at the rear of the transmission. Has anyone had this problem and what were the costs to repair?
Also, can anyone tell me what transmission I might have? Thanks. Chuck

Its most likely leaking because he took the parking brake off the back of the trans.

The output shaft that rides in the seal is part of the brake, so there is nothing holding in the fluid.

That's what I am wondering. Is the leak normal with the brake off? Looking for anyone that might be able to tell me for sure. Chuck
