Unhappy pinpointing an oil leak

Does anyone know what this metal piece in the picture is called? I have oil leaking from it, around the gasket. I can't figure out what it's called. Help?

the entire assembly is the front bevel gear assembly the break down of the parts can be found on using the on-line microfiche.

There are a couple of O rings inside there....
P/N 671B2565 "0" RING,65MM (smaller one)
P/N 92055-1306 RING-O (larger one)

But I don't see any other seals? (atleast going by what I see at Ron Ayers)

There is an O ring that fits before the shims and the like where the clutch mechanism is. PN 92055-1306. I would imagine that if it is damaged, it would leak oil.
The other alternative is the gasket that seals the front bevel gear housing to the engine. When I reinstalled mine after the rebuild, the gasket got damaged and I leaked a fair amount of oil out of it. I ended up fixing it by removing the front bevel gear, cleaning the mating surfaces, and then using high temp RTV as a gasket. Havn't had a leak from there since.
