Try adding some Lucas transmission stop slip not only stops slipping but also seals transmission leaks.

Check the tranny lines from the radiator for leaks. The problem is if there is a small leak fluid usually gets blown backward (wile driving) making the leak more hard to find. You can also place the rear wheels on jack stands and let the engine run in gear so see if it is dripping. Hose off the undercarriage first to remove as much loose oil as possible.

Thanks after I looked really good there are 2 bolts missing from a "joining bond" (2 parts connect ) thus causing the Leak. I think the stripped them selfs out. Seems smooth when I look in the hole. But that's the problem Right along top of oil pan it's like a litte box the connects the unit to the end hunk.

Try attaching a cell phone photo. Cannot determine what you are trying to describe. However, the tranny pan is connected to the tranny with as many as 14 to 16 bolts around the edges. If there are two missing in that area, surrounding the pan, that could be your leak.
