Re: Just venting...Bellhousing leak.

In my case, it was the flywheel to crankshaft bolts. I can't remember if any of the bellhousing bolts are open to oil, but I'm sure one of the more Corvair-centric members can answer that question.

Just to add a bit, I like to use the thicker bell housing gasket which moves the seal to a new place on the crankshaft. It was the secret ingredient in The Source's relocated seal kit.

Also, I'm a big fan of Syl Glyde grease. Like some people with hot sauce, I put that stuff on almost everything. It didn't work well on crankshaft seals though.
I'm still not sure if grease or just plain old motor oil is the best thing. I asked for opinions a while back and I'm not sure there was a clear consensus.
