Regarding the pinhole at the pivot bolt seat, I believe it's actually a design flaw, where the side cover stud hole is drilled a little too deep, and penetrates into the pivot bolt seat. I found that out by removing the stud and looking into the stud hole to see light coming through the pinhole. Actually, there is a backing plate inside the transmission for the pivot bolt threads. See picture. I think the stud hole also penetrates into that backing plate, as I could see the shine of that metal in the stud hole too. I am guessing that my leak is due to oil is leaking at the backing plate into the stud hole, and then out the pin hole at the pivot bolt. I ended up sealing the pin hole with JB weld. Hopefully that will do the trick.
