11-year bump. Just got a few clarifying questions before I do this job. 1990 740 b230ft, 265k. It's leaking oil badly from the lower part of the engine. It's not the rear main seal that I just replaced, the oil drips from the bellhousing bracket bolt on the side, not the lowermost bolt which would definitely mean a rear main is possible. I thought it was the oil cooler lines, so I replaced the crush washers and that didn't solve the leak. The turbo return o-ring was recently replaced and is dry.

I noticed there is a visible crack in the oil pan gasket, does this warrant a replacement? I got under the car while running and it looked like the oil was just dripping off the bellhousing bracket bolt but it was hard to see where it was coming from.

If I were to do this job, should I replace the two oil pump o-rings? If they're that finicky to install correctly could I just leave them be? I'm leaning towards installing the gasket dry, and if it leaks, go back and replace it with one thin bead of black rtv. Are any gasket brands better than others these days? I mainly see the Fel-Pro, Mahle, and the "aftermarket" one's IPD sells.

Lastly, in a 700/900, what's the easiest way to remove the pan? Completely remove the engine from the car, or just remove engine mounts and raise it slightly but still keep it in the car, so to speak? My neighbor does have an engine hoist I can borrow.

Thanks in advance.

Is it leaking from the distributor?

Doing the oil pump o-rings and oil separator drain hose when the pan is off is a good idea.

It is somewhat wet. I have a brand new rear cam seal from Dee works that I'm going to replace when I do the cam swap. Would it make sense if I do the cam swap first, replace the rear cam seal and see if the leak persists first?

So I pulled off the distributor, the shaft has quite a lot of fore and after play. Does this mean the internal seal is shot and needs to be replaced? So it's probably not the oil pan gasket that's leaking but the distributor?
