Steering Box leak

Hi Guys, newbie here with a steering box leak.
It's coming from under the top seal.
I tried tightening it down, but its already tight, so
I pretty sure the seal is done.
Is it a easy replacement seal kit fix, or do I need a new box?

Just saw the other post for the Meridian gearbox.
Just didn't know if I have to replace the whole unit....

The seal kits are $50. you'll need to weigh that and the time/cost (if you're not doing it) against having a new replacement box.
