Question on 2004r

I have a brand new 2004r and am setting up the TV cable. This is going in a V8 car so its DIY TV cable install. Any way, I drained the pan and flipped the tranny over on an engine stand and pulled the pan off so I could see the plunger and check the operation. After about 10 minutes fluid started to come out of the front where the shaft comes out. Is this normal?
Thanks!

Yes. Without a converter in there, there's no seal. With it upside down, fluid's going to drain into the pump from the valvebody and out that giant hole.
