oil leak from bell housing
Posted by: rudyck ()

Looks like I'm in trouble again. I have pretty significant oil drips coming from the 2 outer bolts on the bottom sides of the bell housing. No leak from the small hole in the bottom. I just replaced the oil pan gasket and this leak has gotten worse. I used a cork gasket with permatex on both sides. I wonder if I could be getting a poor seal around the gear in the rear end of the oil pan. I don't mine pulling the pan again, anything to stop this leak. Any suggestions?

How about the blower cover gaskets leaking down the front? You usually see it in the back by the oil filter adapter. I like to do these any time I have the PowerPack removed for a clutch and front crank seal.
