I'm not following your leak location description but 2 things come to mind 1) I would never put a sealer in the transmission if that's what you are talking about.  2) Is it possible that it is over filled and blowing out the vent?  When does it leak?
If you are in the Dallas area we can put it on my lift and take a look.

Subject: <VV> PG leak

 The PG in my '66 leaks too much ATF. What isn't leaking is the pan gasket, the "o" ring on the TV shaft, the "O" ring on the cable input nor the cable itself. All these have been correctly sealed and show no evidence of leakage. The leak is somewhere above the drivers side as best I can find. I've used brake cleaner to clean the ATF from the PG to be sure the leak is not coming from the resealed places.

 I think I'll try a sealer before turning the job over to the Transmission guy.  Any suggestions for brand? Currently I cannot pull the drive train as my shop has a car in it.
