Its an O ring, I changed that.
basically its the same as the T3 only its 4 bolts at 90 ft/lbs that hold the
flywheel on rather than one big gland nut.
back side of the flywheel was dry.
Possible that it was coming from the cam plug, but im pretty anal
about getting that sealed on assembly.

I don't remember what there is in a Type 4 engine that seals between the 
flywheel and the crank. On our engines it's an O-ring, or paper gasket on 
early engines, but what's there on Type 4s?

What did the back side of the flywheel look like?
