I would suggest a good Tractor/Hydrauilic oil that meets J20A specs and a new filter. If it was that bad it should be drained again anyway. You may be foaming the oil if it coming out the filler or it may be over full. If you do not have a dipstick there is a level plug in the rear of the axle just below the filler tube.
I used 15w40 in my skid steer and have to run an anti-foaming additive.
Any other leak should just be a matter of find and repair.

I plan on changing it again this week, the manual called for atf, I know some run diesel oil in them, but would atf be the best or is hyd oil better? I need to find a place that sells parts so I can get started on it. Thaks for the advice!

Thanks for the help guys. I tore into the wiring nightmare last night. I got it figured outfor the most part. The only thing throwing me for a loop is that the diagram I have shows 4 connections on my pto switch but the actual switch has 5 contacts. Anyone know whats going on there? I will be getting someparts in the next week or two. Hoping to have her done and looking like new by fall.
2 are used to power the clutch and the other 2 prevent starter engagement if it is on. The 5th is not used as far as I know.
The diagram is here.

He is right though, only 4 of the contacts are used on the pto switch. I am pretty sure all of the seals are available from places like jacks small engined or parts tree like already mentioned. I have had pretty good luck getting stuff from the dealer also.
