Transmission Leak

I HAVE A 1987 300E.RECENTLY I NOTICED FLUID LEAKING FROM AROUND THE TRANSMISSION PAN.SO NATURALLY I DROPPED THE PAN AND REPLACED THE SEAL.THE LEAK IS STILL THERE.THE LEAK APPEARS TO BE COMING FROM AROUND THE SEAL AT THE RIGHT CENTER BOLT.ANY IDEA WHAT ELSE COULD BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM.

The pan often warps from overtightening. Carefully examine in the area of leak.

All leaks wind up dripping from the pan and I have seen fluid run all the way around from a leak on the far side. Look closely above the pan for trails.
