clutch replaced now leaks oil?

some say you have to tighten the flywheel to specs or it will leak oil?

it started about a week later?

is it the rms or can it come from somewhere else through the bellhousing?

thanks steve

ya, theres a drain hole atop the motor, in the p/s valley, in the corner. ifoils' leaking in the valley, it'll drain down the hole, into the bell housing, replicating a bad rear main seal.
