Sorry..........As u can tell i'm not a mechanic..... the part, i believe is to shift into passing gear. Its not connected in the car i bought but leaking pretty badly. Its a blue plastic piece with a place for an electric connection. Its located on the same side where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Thank you.

Ok, I see now. You will need to drop the pan and remove the wires from the plastic piece. There are two tabs inside that need to get pressed in and then the piece can be pushed out. Hopefully the piece isn't brittle from age.
When it's out you will find an o-ring on it, you can go down to the autoparts store and get a universal o-ring, save yourself the headache and don't bother telling them what it's for (or go to a small family owned transmission shop).
Clean all parts with brake cleaner and maybe apply a small amount of silicone sealer. And reassemble it.
