Thanks Nakman, that gives me a good place to start with the oil leak. How tough is it to replace that crack seal if needed?

Jeff, I'll have to do some research and reconsider that K&N filter. It came with the rig so no big loss to dump it. The good news is, after taking off the air cleaner housing to check for gunk in the inlet, it's totally clean. No dust or other particulates. Maybe got lucky.
