They say vdubs don't leak oil, they mark their spot.
The proper procedure for changing your oil pump can be found in the book. "How to keep your vw alive forever." By john muir
i recommend it highly.
I've kept my 73sb running and safe for over 12 years now with little more than that book, a few
basic tools, and a bit of patience.
You'd also want to check the torque on the heads,
when they get a little loose, they don't seal the pushrod tubes enough and you'll get some oil from there too. Also the sump plate on bottom of the case. DO NOT over tighten those 6 bolts! The plate will warp and you'll get oil.
