5kcstq Oil Leak

Good evening, Q-Listers!

With the timing belt change complete, it seemed prudent
to see how well things are going to hold up before I
totally commit to the Pike's Peak trip. So I've been
pushing it hard for the last two days. Crawled under 
the front of the car to check for leaks. None on the
pavement, good sign. Look upward at the harmonic
balancer and the oil pump. D*mn, some leakage, but
not near the crank seal. Seems to be centered around
the pressure relief valve built into the oil pump.

Is this cause for concern? Or, is this just the oil
pressure relief valve doing it's job?

Thanks in advance for any BTDTs, &c.... -doug q
