[DML] Re: oil leak in valley-o-death (was first week of ownership blues (crankshaft seal))

Maybe you can find someone with a innershield aluminum mig welder? 
They could weld a thick bead of weld over the whole, and that fix 
would easily last for a while with proper penetration.

You could grind any areas under the manifold smoth after you weld.

Maybe something like that would work, using welding rod in such a 
tight area probably wouldn't be a good idea. Metal doesn't need to be 
spotledd to get a good weld, just get good penetration, and a good 
patch over the hole, you should be ok.
