Eeek! I really don't want to pull the engine. I am going to crawl under it on Friday to determine where the leak is. It just started leaking all of a sudden, alot, just like that, (snap of the fingers).

I have an oil leak on my '67 327. It looks like it is coming from the front main seal or oil pan. I am going to fix it this weekend. Any tips?

if it is an oil pan, I would recomend pulling the engine and doing it right, if it is the front main, a sleeve on the harmonic balancer works well.

One thing I always recomend is to put some none drying permatex on the key way when u put the harmonic balancer back on. Most people don't think of it but oil will leak out thru the keyway even if the seal and pan are sealing okay. I have had brand new seals with the new repair sleeves and new pan gaskets leak and when i put the permatex on the keyway it solved the problem. My 3 cents. Terry
