Here is the video with dye in the oil. The large gasket is mostly dry. Nothing by the output shafts.

So the transmission took 8 oz of the ATP stop leak and 1 qt of max life high mileage ATF which based on the manual meets the requirements. The leak now smells like tranny fluid even though it is still leaking from the same location. The old fluid that was in the tranny was blackish and didn't smell like any normal tranny fluid which is usually a strong smell if it is good or bad. Was the OE fluid not similar enough to smell near the same?

So this is still an issue and now that I updated to just transmission fluid leak the dye shows up previously it was just the color of transmission fluid with the light. Here is the leak and it seems to be coming from by the hose but from what I can find that is just brake fluid going to the clutch. Any ideas?

So the leak seems to be behind where the hose connects and might be hitting the clutch and spraying around it then draining from the clutch inspection opening or what ever the opening is for. I have searched for a good diagram but can't find any to see what gaskets are used and how it is assembled.
