Replace the rear cover seal. Clean the surfaces very good. Make sure the cover is flat. Use some silicone, and a gasket....
i can not find any gaskets!

10b gaskets should be all over the place....A bead of silicone that has had time to 'set' will work too....
<font color="red"> how in the heck can you not find a 10b gasket? do u go to napa or autozone? or sum local garage? i mean, almost anyone should have a gasket for those, cus they're so common, but, silicone always works well, just make sure its made for it, dun go to home depot and grap a tube. lol. </font>
Yeah just run a nice bead of form-a-gasket and it shouldnt leak a bit, thats what I did to my daily driver and have had no probs.
Dont waste time and money on a gasket. Just use silicone, put it on the cover , put the cover on, add friction modifier and oil and its done.
