    I would start by finding out where its leaking. The plastic bag and ductape sounds like a hack job repair.

    There is usually a weep hole in the bottom of the bell housing. It is probabally leaking their and thats why they put a bag and ductape on their.

    If it is leaking from that hole, it is most likely either a rear main seal or a transmission input seal. You can usually tell by the color, smell, or viscosity of the fluid comming out of their.

    Can you post a picture of the square hole? I am unfamiliar with where that would be.

    The plastic bag is for collection of spare parts, do not lose or misplace. Just joking why would someone put in plastic bag in the transmission?

    Would #15 in the exploded view look to be the plate you mention? This would be the Hydraulic lift sump cover. The part number for the gasket for that plate is NCA898A. About $10 through your New Holland dealer.
