Thanks Doc

Kind of figured that given the low number of posts. Have had a little fluid in that area for the 3 years i've had the car, but everything was clean after the timing chain job, and i can see that only the bottom half of the susp pump is getting oily. hydraulic reservior lowers slightly each day, and the drips dropping from the trans cooler line have that sticky feel of Febi suspension fluid. P/S fluid is staying level and the loss would be too small to notice in as engine oil rising. Don't see the mounting gasket as a FastLane item, and there are 5 or 6 pages listed in PartShop when i search for "gasket", no clue which of 50 or so it might be!! Would a gasket sealer work there?
