Every engine I have ever owned has ended up leaking or seeping oil from somewhere. Even stuff that is new from the factory in a new car.

A drip on the floor is a leak. Have you traced where the drip is coming from on the engine? The picture wasn’t very telling to my eyes

Seems like $11,500 of the $12,000 build is working perfectly. If it was me I would take it apart and see what, if anything, was done wrong. Then you have a case.

I think again everyone is missing my point, The engine was not even broken in and it was leaking oil......
trust me that it won’t make a lick of difference for his overall reputation and how he is viewed on the Internet by the vast majority.

I bought Probe pistons through Woody when he was just starting out. But I did do my own assembly and two piece rear main seal. Did it to the T and it still leaked after a month or so.

The idea that Jim doesn’t know how to properly do a rear main seal is highly unlikely. Investigate and make a case. Otherwise just ask for sympathy.
