I was having trouble logging in to the forums when this happened, so I couldn't ask for help, but I thought I'd pass it on anyway.

I had a slow oil leak that initially looked like it was coming from the crankcase breather tube, but then got much worse very quickly. It was spewing oil all over my boot, pants, and worse yet, shiny exhaust pipes. I pulled over to see if I could find the source, and it was actually bubbling out of the base of the rear lifter block. Fearing a gasket replacement, I first tried just tightening down the bolts on the block, and it's been leak free since.
