Thanks you were helpful before as well!!! Not trying to beat you up but, I thought if I could show you from where the oil is leaking, I could pinpoint the cause?? So, YES you agree its RMS????

You have it that far apart you might as well replace it now. There is athread on this with some great tips. Here are a couple of links.

Jokerchief-In my pick my buddy pointed out with the pan removed, If you look up from my arrow in the pic,their is the CAM??? All the oil leaking in at the arrow or seam could be the cam cap on the rear of the block facing tranny side???? Your opinion???Thanks in advance......AA:punk:

In my experience, your rear main is leaking or possibly the back of the valve cover is leaking and flowing its way down

We did that already......

The RMS was good,dry but we still did it! Cover (rear) is dry and clean with NO oil coming down the motor,With this said; The oil comes from the seam in the photo where the arrow is. My mech buddy thinks maybe it's coming from the cam cap seal on the block????And leaking straight down????:confused:
