3) if there is oil droplets on the center/bottom of the bellhousing, the problem could be either the rear main seal or the rear engine cover porosity issue........or BOTH.

And I have all three.........does that mean I win the prize

To hell with it I'll put oil in the engine before I'm going to tear it apart for a small drop of oil or two.
