[Vwdiesel] I think I just dodged a bullet!

Was it the camshaft front seal leaking oil all over the timing belt?  This
is happening on my 1980, 1.5NA that is in my genset and I have been putting
off changing the seal and belt because of activities overload.

The leak is not so bad that I have to add oil so much as it just makes a
slow mess of the front of the engine and in the drip pan beneath..
