Hi guys. Some of you may have read my thread about me rebuilding my car engine. Well before you read on I have put both front and rear crank seals in.. new front camchain cover gasket, rocker cover and sump. But I am still loosing a little oil. There seems to be a little coming around the sump, but I dont think its actually coming out of the sump itself.

Would I be correct in thinking its the oil filter housing where it joins the block?

My estimate is approx quater of a litre for 5000 miles. The thing is the engine was spotless when it went back in and oil has leaked since.. Ill get it done then see
what the next 2500 miles bring.

All my engines in the past were on semi synthetic before this.. Not used to engines burning oil like these can :)
