I haven’t took my fly wheel off yet but my bell housing has a lot more oil in so I would say yours isn’t leaking.

The seal is only under pressure when the engine is running, and the oil will simply drain away when its sitting to the sump. Usually you find a puddle of engine oil in the bell housing. Check back of flywheel for wear. That looks like a silicon seal by the way.

No it is not, hence this thread. Read the info in my first post.
