Tremec T5 oil leak

I have an oil leak that only appears after driving. The drips collect at the main case/tailhousing seam, but I'm not so sure this is the source.
Since the conversion is an assembly of items in "layers", the view of the transmission is poor at best. I removed and resealed the reverse light switch, but
have a curiosity about the "cap" that apparently covers the end of a main case spring post for the reverse brake. I cannot find an on-line
service manual that addresses this part, and wonder if any of the readers here can shed any light on the subject?
The reason I suspect the oil leak is not at the main case/tailhousing seam is there is no additional leaking when parked. However,
maybe that is due to the cooling of the transmission and oil? I would just tear into it, but for this installation, I have to take out the diff,
driveshaft, entire exhaust, interior, etc., and I don't want to!!
