Oil Leaking

I have had some major leaking from my 78 CJ 5 so I had the rear main seal replaced and I put in a bigger plug in the pan. This cured 90% of it, but after looking closer, I think some of it may be coming down from the back of my valve cover. I am a novice. Is there anything tricky about replacing the gasket? I wouldn't think so but I thought I should ask first. Thanks for the help.

Re: Oil Leaking

Have you got the plastic valve cover? If so, these are a major pain for leaks. Do a search on this board for "valve cover" and see the options available to you (hope you enjoy reading).[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
