Has anyone else experienced small amounts of oil leaking around the Hall/RPM sensors on the back of the engine block?

Yes,  just checked mine prior to heading to Mexico this weekend.  Have you talked with the UL power guys yet?  Fix? Recommendations?

I was able to talk with Ray Lawrence this morning.  He said that the factory is aware of this problem.  They have not got a complete solution yet.  Possibly they are trying to come up with a different O-ring to help seal this area off.  He said that I can take the units off apparently there is a clip that holds him in a couple more nuts to take off, clean him put a little bit of high temp RTV and seal them back into place.   hopefully, I can get this done tonight so I can still make it in Mexico on Friday.

I removed the nuts and sealed the pickups last pm.  Wasn't hard.   No obvious leak with engine test.  Will see if this helps.
