Default V/P shift cable sleeve leaking

I have a 2001 5.7 GXI that I suspect the shift cable sleeve is leaking on the transom shield. It seems that when I have several people on the boat, I start taking on water in the bilge. When the boat is sitting at the dock their is no leak from the shift cable. There is limited access to the area to see whats leaking. Its look like the compression fitting above the nut is rusted and causing the leak. Can the shift cable sleeve be changed without removing the engine and does anybody know the size of the nut on the shift cable sleeve?;?
