Default Wards Gilson 1972, W/ Vickers Hydrostatic

One of my recent past Winter projects was to return this old tractor to service. I've been giving it a good workout, but a leak that has been with it since purchase, is getting worse. Searching for a seal/gasket kit has been fruitless, so I'm hoping someone here can point the way.

The leak is an "O" ring on the forward/reverse pintle where it exits the case. This is part#17 on the included drawing. To get to this "O" ring, I'll need to remove the transmission and disassemble it from one end to the other (or so I'm led to believe). I can't find any numbers or tags on this unit except that the tractor is a 33148A or 33148C (not sure why I have two numbers).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Pictures of this tractor can be seen here:
