'87 S-10 Blazer 2.8 V6

After at least 10 years of dripping oil and 5 years of driving with an obviously oil soaked clutch, I take it apart . . expecting a shot rear main seal . . . but no . . .

The rear main's fine - the oil is coming from above - the top of the bell housing is filthy with oil. . . .

My guess is the intake manifold . . . but I'd thought I'd ask before taking it apart . . as that looks like a worse job than what I just completed under the truck!

I apologize if this has been addressed before - I'm a forum newbie looking for HELP

Thanks!

Double check your valve covers, they will most likely be the culprit.

check the distrib

If the 'O' ring goes on the Distrib shaft, it floods the top of the bellhousing. The valve covers could leak enough to fry a clutch also!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU . . . .

I really appreciate your leads - I haven't dug into it any further, but I'd guess the distributor based on the looks of things . .

Again thanks again . . forums like this are one of the best things about the 'net. :cool:
