[DML] Re: Oil leak, ideas and inspiration!!

Ah yes, sorry should have mentioned that I had checked that one out 
already. There is oil definatly 
leaking from somewhere around/below water pump. I shoved some 
absorbent paper down behind the water pump and it did come up with 
fresh oil on it, so really if my thinking is correct it can be a; 
oil leak from block (but if this were the case would it not be a 
huge leak due to oil pressure??) b; timing chain cover near the top. 
c; rear main throwing it everywhere? Any one got any thoughts, or 
should I bite the bullet and start stripping things, or leave it 
until it gets really bad.
