Rear Main Seal Leak

Looks like I have a slight leak at the rear main seal on my Perkins 4.154. It will not be easy to pull the engine/trans to make the repair.

Anything I can do to slow/stop the leak? All the fasteners are very tight.

Here's my standard answer. There is a slim chance the crankcase blow-by vent tube is clogged. That can force oil out. Slim chance, but super easy to check. I fixed a leaky engine once this way...
