    Looks like a bolt to the backing plate of the bellhousing. Probably not critical as the plate just keeps dust out. Just get a wreck on it with a little lock tight applied.

    Why would you have to shift in gear? NEVER run the shafts dry. If your worried, just turn the prop by hand once and a while.

    Thanks for the comments mnm, actually I'm not worrying about the Shaft Seal (which should work by turning the prop by hand!) rather than the transmission itself...
