81' Ford f100 4.9L straight 6, leaking fluid from transmission at the point where the dipstick tube enters the pan, and on the other side by the linkage. What do I need to fix this and how much time and money am I looking at?? I have already bought what was supposed to be a gasket for the linkage side, but after taking the linkage apart, I still cannot figure out where it goes.

do you mean the shaft seal for the linkage is leaking? The dipstick tube usually uses an o-ring or a rubber bushing to seal it up and will have a bolt holding the tube about halfway up it. Take out the bolt and pop the tube out. Its a simple and cheap repair. The shaft seal at the linkage might be a bit of a pain to get out, but its not a labor intensive job especially since your van gives a lot of room for a guy to get at it.
