There is no seal or gasket on the neutral start switch, however there are two seals in/on the manual shift linkage. One is installed in the case, it is a small oil seal and the other is an o-ring that fits inside the manual shift linkage and around the kickdown lever. The case mounted oil seal requires you to remove the linkage from inside the case, IOW you must remove the pan and valve body from the trans. It can be done while in the car and would be a good oppotunity to put in a shift kit!!
