Subject: Loss of power/transmission

I have a GL500 Interstate that has lost transmission power and leaks oil from the transmission cover. I suspect an oil leak in the link between the clutch and drive shaft. The engine starts and runs fine until I try to engage the drive and then it will work but under duress - t.e. high revs low speed and slipping clutch. Anyone any ideas what it could be and how to go about repairing it and sourcing spare parts? Or should I simply rebuild the engine? Done 50,000miles.
Many thanks
Jerry
