I will remove the starter in the next couple of hours and let ya'll know what I find. G-man I am pretty sure that if it is the rear main that it would NOT continue to leak after shut off and I feel the same holds true for the rear of the head gasket. My plans are to do the repairs starting Jan. 4th - whether it is the head gasket or the rear seal. I have some time off and will be able to take my time with it.
