Any updates to this? Can you provide a picture (or several) of the areas with the most oil? And do you own an inspection mirror? If not, look into getting one, they're great for issues like this. Long flex handle with 1.5" ish mirror on the end.

Ralph, how's it going? Did you figure anything out by looking around behind the engine? If you still need some help, snap some pics sometime and throw them up here.
