Engine Mechanical problem
1973 Volkswagen Van 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 45000 miles
My 73 Westy has a 2L engine with about 5,000 miles on it. During our most recent trip we put about 1200 miles on it of which were hard due to hills and high speed highways (70+). I have noticed the alternator and top right side of the engine is wet with oil. This does not appear to be a valve cover leak. Are there any common leaks that can occur in this area and is this something that needs immediate attention. The leak is minimal as the oil level barely dipped below the add mark in 1200 miles.
