1940 320 transmission leak

I took the opportunity to get a closer look at the oil leak at the tail of the trans. Just below the output shaft there was a hole that had putty covering it. The oil was seeping out from under the putty. I cleaned it off and there is a horizontal slot. I am not sure if it a vent or a hole that needs to be repaired.

I have had another look at the hole in the casing. What I believe happened at some time in the past was a long bolt was put in the disk and it scrapped the metal away. The hole looked like it was roughly cut it some way. I saw one of the bolts had a few washers on the back side and it might have been too long when installed decades ago during some work. Some epoxy putty should seal it back up.
