Back to the oil leak. I can probably replace it myself, but I'll have to figure out beforehand what is behind that bolt (springs? Bearing? ??) and I'll need to know what the tourque value is. Has anyone replaced this gasket?
Since you are 185 miles from your nearest dealer I assume that you are talking about Engle Motors, in Kansas City. Engle fixed my leak a few weeks ago under warranty, so they have recent first-hand experience with this problem. I suggest you give them a call and talk to the shop manager (John) and see if he can give you the info. I don't think it is much of a job--it took them very little time to do the repair, which consisted of replacing a gasket.
