Automatic Transmission Lower Drain Seal

So the seal on this drain on the 97 NAS V8 automatic transmission bell housing weeps a bit over time. Now I can't seem to find what the stupid part is actually called, or if it even has a gasket. So anybody knows what it may be secretly referred to as or a part number or is there an alternative, like RTV, Hallomar or what? RAVE gives no clue.

That's not a drain, if you have oil dripping you have either a A/T front seal or or the rear engine seal leaking

The gasket is FRC7707

Not the other seals, it weeps at the screws, static.

As John said, there shouldn't be any oil in the bell housing. Is it ATF leaking or engine oil?

Well it is then seeping somewhere in the bell housing, like the torque converter seals. Not enough to do anything radical, like pulling the tranny. It is one of those cosmetic Land Rover leaks, one drip in the morning. Since I was cleaning a bunch of little things up before going back in the field on thursday. Changed out the radiator, viscous clutch and sent the injectors off for clean and flow. Always looking to stop small annoying leaks, the annoyance is more from my wife, see notices small oil drops. She forgot the splats the Series trucks used to leave.

I appreciate the PN for the gasket. I'll get one on my next order of, whatever from Rover's North. I don't think it is much, perhaps a drop every other day, if that. AFT is a good penetrant, so it will leak on things like the screw threads quite readily.

My heavy equipment guy gave me a tip for diesel injectors. My Cat 325 Excavators at the mine keep getting clogged injectors. The heat this time of year makes the tanks get a shellacy crud on the walls. Somehow the bits seem to get by the filter and about once a month and I need to get them re-flowed and cleaned out. His suggestion is to fill the fuel filter with ATF to the brim, then screw it in. The diesel will burn the quart of ATF, no problem, but that initial burst will clean out the injectors of that crud. It is a long drive from the mine to Hermosillo, 1.5 off road and 3 on a really shitty hwy 15. So not having to run them in every month will save a bunch of time.
