The T-5 will not bolt up the the SROD bell housing without redrilling. Also the the T-5 bearing retainer is larger (requiring maching to the bell housing. A Tremec will bolt up to the SROD bell housing (note very practical). What you need is the hard to find T-4 bell housing (produced in 1981 only)....

The inspection plate is just that, it's there for inspection. It is not a seal. If your leaking its from the trans, or converter or possible rear main seal.
While its good to have one, I don't thinks that's your problem.
