Transmission leaking at the top

I have a 2007 Revolt with the first gen trans and on this last dune trip the gasket started leaking at the top of the halves. I have recently serviced it and added the bellows to the vent tube and made sure it was standing up. My questions are:

1) Where do I get a new gasket? Red Rock?
2) What would cause this leak to form up top? Are my bellows too small and not allowing for enough heat expansion, building up too much pressure in the trans?

The one I am using is a Suzuki part (don't recall the part number) and it is about 4'' tall.

There isn't any gasket. Just silicone sealer between the case half's. It is a common problem. Usually it starts from the bolts loosening up. Check them. You will probably have to split the case and re-seal it. A vented breather works better than a bellows.
