ATF leaks

I'm thoroughly frustrated!  I cannot seem to find out how to stop the
ATF leak form my auto trans, 86 5000CST.  It never leaked until I
changed the pan gasket last year.  I replaced the gasket several times,
once with permatex.  No luck, I still get the perpetual dripping, and
it's not coming from the dipstick joint to the pan either.  I changed it
last week, NOT suing permatex, and it's leaking worse.  Is there a trick
to seating it right?  Could it be leaking from somewhere else?  I know
for certain it is ATF, and not final drive lube, so it can't be coming
from the axle seals.

Please help!
