No problemo, just PM me your shipping address and I will get a quote. Most likely be about $20-$25 for shipping.

Sorry! Forgot to say "PM'ed" for the longest time. In other news it seems by process of elimination, the oil pressure sender may be what's leaking.

Getting to that bugger while in the car, might lose a hand or two and use some choice words on this one.

Oil pressure sender, and the distributor gaskets have been replaced in the last two months. The head is no longer leaking oil. That's wonderful.

However....I'm still dripping (not leaking) oil consistently from the engine. Ignoring the leaks on the rear of the pan, I was a dingus and reused the crush washers for some reason.
I'm getting oil leaking mainly around the bellhousing and starter motor. While this does suck, I'm just glad I'm not smoking oil like I did prior. Now it's just an occasional and subtle whiff.

Tomorrow I start my conquest on what I hope is the LAST major oil leak on the car! I think I've got the process for this job down, if not, I'd appreciate some input!

I "color coded" the image for reference

1. Drop the exhaust from the turbo back (yellow oval).
2. Disconnect the rear axles from the transmission (red diamonds).
3. Dismount the transmission fom the rear suspension (blue rectangles).
4. Unbolt the torque tube from the bellhousing and slide it back (black arrow). Then remove starter and bellhousing.

I also still need to replace my leaking oil cooler lines (Kenodog, if you've still got a set available...). And while I'm there, I'll replace the shifter bushings at the trans, and inspect the clutch and such.
