What the picture dosen,'t show is how wet the area was. I usually drive the car about 8 miles around town. I suspect with the lower revs and lower oil pressure, the leak is much less severe, but at high revs and high oil pressure it really flows and it only leaks when the car is running, which would explain the lack of a big oil puddle in the garage.

My only concern is that when i tried to tighten the sender, it kept rotating... Hopfully the threads on the block aren't stripped!

Plan on using some Permatex thread sealer on the new sender
