1966 ranchero transmission filler tube

Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I just picked up a 1966 Ranchero with the 200ci straight six. It's going to be a project, so I suspect I'll be a regular here.

I was replacing the starter the other day and I noticed that the transmission filler tube has a bracket that looks like it should fit between the starter and the mounting flange on the engine. I was trying to get the bracket lined up with the bolt hole, and the next thing I knew transmission fluid was leaking everywhere, Doh!

Anyway, my questions are: does the filler tube connect to to the starter? do you think I need a new tube, or just a new seal where the tube enters the transmission? I have the shop manual, but couldn't seem to find anything on this.

Thanks in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Filler tube goes into top left bell housing bolt as you view the motor from the front.

It goes on the back of the bell, then the bell bolt goes in.
