    you have a starter seal, inner primary seal, crankcase o-ring, mainshaft large and a small mainshaft seal, best bet is to replace all of them anyone could cause this leak also a loose belt pulley on trans could cause trans to leak. if you replace all these seals and it still leaks look for warped trans mainshaft, bad inner primary bearing or crack in primary cover. dont know of any other thing that would cause this leak unless it coming from somewhere else and running down primary.
