OK, I can see the natural male curiosity, is going to bother you until, you can see a logical explanation for the mysterious oil leak.W ell this is it. The gasket is hardened and dry from 188000 mi of excessive heat.
Untouched the gasket remains one solid piece, But when you remove the wire bang the plug socket into the gasket etc, all this has knocked a chunk from this old gasket and guess what an oil leak.
No a new gasket this cannot happen with. Billymac
