Nice catch Carl!
Clutchee, don't pay no attention to Kowboy. That rope tied around that yellowtop is better than my rig's got.

I have to replace gaskets and seal all over the engine. I made it home fine but I got more oil leaks then when I left. The front and rear main seal leaking/moisutre around them. oil pan gasket was already in bad shape. so my as well change them all at this time then later.

Sorry about the hijack
