pipe, near where it joins the case. There should be a short (~3") piece
of hose 
that joins the two metal pipes. These do not need hose clamps.

There should be a hose that runs ffrom the RR upper corner over to the

Is everything there and connected nicely? Is the box tight on the

If all this seems correct, can you describe again where you think you
see the 
most (or the wettest) oil?
