1975 450sl transmission is out

Hi, I pulled the transmission to replace the front shaft torque converter seal. I'm really not looking forward to this again. So any advice of things to replace while the tranny is out.
Rear main seal, its not leaking, should I just replace it anyway, transmission pump o-ring, same thing, not leaking now! Anything else you have to pull the transmission to repair?

I would replace any external o rings, and seals you can. Trans filter and fluid a given, including converter. It would be an easy job to do your flex discs, center support, and u joint now too. Check for seepage of the rear main seal on the engine. Easy time to fix it.
