@Thirdpedalenthusiast - Thanks for the question! All of the typical Prelude oil leak areas have been addressed. The oil pan gasket, oil filter housing mount o-ring, vtec solenoid gasket, distributor o-ring, valve cover gasket have all been replaced within the last 6 months. Check out the pictures for some shots of the engine during service.
