Oil coming from somewhere. Ugh.

I would like to find this myself and see if I can take care of it. If not, I'll have to bring it in.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Looks to be a M8. So no idea as to precedent for a leak in that area. Oil filter is above there, so that would be the first thing to check. And there was an issue with an oil cooler line being clamped wrong. Just work your way up hill and up wind till you stop seeing oil. Then back up a bit. Pen light and a mirror on a stick will help.

Yes M8. I took off my chrome oil filter and put on an HD one. Then cleaned it all up. Hopefully that will do it.
