If that's the case then I'll just wait with the gasket fix. It is a fairly slow leak that has been there at least a year, maybe two. It's my last known fluid leak (of four). I need to fix the leaks for the sake of the belly pan I am making right now, but I could just finish the build and keep the front uninstalled until my next oil change.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
