So what's the net.wisdom on this stuff? Most of it appears to be
top-end stuff around the cams; I know that leaks are not uncommon but
it also seems like most of the cam-related stuff would be accessible
from the top without needing to disassemble the front again. Is that

The crank seal, though, I could see being a good candidate...
