So I thought my starter leak was source of my oil leak. Well It's not the only culprit. I hate oil leaks, and I know 0-200's are notorious for leaking.

On my cylinder #4, thats the front cylinder on the pilot side.I have the cylinder base bolt, the top bolt in the 12;00 position, its leaking oil enough to stain the side of my cowling in a one hour flight.

A little RTV over the bolt accomplished nothing. Tried to tighten or loosen bolt, doesn't seem to want to move.

So before I try anything else, anyone have this issue and fixed it?

I don't think its a thru the case bolt, but not sure and i sure don't want to mess up the torque of the case and bearings on the crank.

I know I can remove the cylinder and try to fix the leak that way, but thats a last resort.

Engine has only 750 since New, not rebuilt, New.
