Re: V8 Oil Leak

        Here's another V8Q with a small oil leak. What is the well known
        leak? Mine seems to leak on the side of the ox sensor and can be
        smelled after a high speed run. I did have a broken valve cover
        vent/return hose that I thought would fix the problem but didn't..
        The leak isn't big enough to cause a drip on the ground..
        Any hints apriciated.

According to FBFISH:
