Ford 5000 leaking trans fluid

My ford 5000 got stuck in a ditch... then in flooded. Engine oil was clean. I drained the trans and put 5 gallons of fresh fluids in and she started leaking from the plate between trans and engine. Thoughts?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I might be mistaken, but I thought that the later 5000's with dual power had a common sump between the trans and rear end?

That's why I didn't reply earlier. He didn't say what he had.
But, I looked at the op manual on that site and saw 12 quarts.
The OP also said he put the oil in the trans. The fill for the common sump is the rear end if I remember correctly.
It would explain the OP problem if he put 20 Quarts in the Trans, correct?

The Trans and the rear end/Hydraulic section are separate sumps on that tractor.
The Trans only holds 12 Quarts, you put in 20. I hope the clutch didn't get wet????
If you need an operator manual, the whole manual is available for download on the "other" Tractor web site.
I can't link to it, this site doesn't allow for it.
Just search for "N" then the word "Tractor" then the word "Club".
Go to Manuals and scroll down to the tractor section.

It's likely just residual water/oil in the clutch housing. Monitor it and it'll likely slow down and stop. Also jiggle the cotter pin on the bottom to help drain the cavity.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
