Check the bearing retainer seals. I've had to replace several for customers on both autos and manuals. I have seen them lose as much as a quart a week. If that is the problem remember to replace the o-ring on the outside of the retainer ( usually the problem anyway )
That wasn't his problem, it was the rear output seal....
But you should NEVER remove the side bearing retainer rings. They adjust the gear loading on the front diff, and if not set correctly can cause the front diff to eat itself. Although if you *have* to do it, then I guess mark where it was, check it's torque and put it back the way you found it. Still not a good idea unless you have the proper tool to set the side gear torque load.

it's a good idea to check the driveshaft that slides into the trans. if it's rusted at all from sitting outside during the work, the roughness of the rust can eat away any new seal and leak.

really need a picture or to know where it's coming from. can you absolutely, for sure, rule out the rear extension housing from leaking - where the driveshaft slides in?

why do you say "it wasn't the rear output seal"?
We replaced it. I'm thinking it may be some of the seals around the shift rods.... weather has been nasty here so it's hard to tell.

For whatever reason, this tranny was missing that switch, and we didn't notice it till it started losing fluid.
