leaking differential

Just when i thought i finished installing my tomei 2way lsd, i realized my differential is leaking. To be exact, its leaking from one of the bolts on the differential cover.

Following installation procedures online, i filled up the differential until fluid started pouring out of the fill-hole. I tried tightening the bolt and it seems like it leaks even faster.

Before i start taking things apart again, what do u guys think i could do to fix this problem? Can i just replace the bolt...or do u think its necessary to buy a new open-differential housing?

id put a continuous beam around where the head and threads of the bolt meet. make sure to clean off the hole and bolt surface with brakeclean or something similar beforehand.
