shooting from the hip here based on faint memories....vented bolt, with dust cap, usually at rear of cover...I don't specifically recall left or right, but would be worthy of underside examination. Sure...plenty of room to disassemble all that...

yes, that is the felt, but I agree with all that given the amount of oil in the clutch pan, unlikely that this is really the problem...its more of a dust shield than a "seal".

And then if the rear main seal is leaking (still a maybe), I would not think it would blow forward to make such a mess of your beautiful engine, so you may indeed be chasing multiple leaks. I hate to speculate, so I will simply stay in the cheap seats from far away and watch as you progress....
And yes, the distributor is driven off the oil pump, which will continue to rotate with the distributor out. And yes, in theory you could reinstall the distributor 180 degrees off, but given that you photo'd the position, I think even you are smart enough to put it back in the correct orientation.

Losing effectiveness of the thick felt in the bellhousing pan?....still that'd be a lot of oil creep...

Make darn sure the manifold heat riser flap is open. if closed, or partially closed, will cause...umm...problems. You've probably checked this, so revert to carb diagnostics.

You comin' to Hershey?

What an exciting trip. Remind me to pack my cellphone and a cooler of drinks before riding with you.

Can send a fuel pump core down to Feltz on Monday if you need...he'll have it next day. ?

Same for Clutch... I'm pretty sure I have a pair of cores if you want them sent anywhere so you can R&R.

other option would be to use a set of the later rods, already set for the later bearings. Have those too.

When I was a young lad, Dick proudly gave me a ride in both V12s. Unfogettable experience.
