Are there any options besides a complete tear down for a leaky motor?

I can't tell 100% where it's leaking but it's pretty heavy - seems to be around the clutch
case side and/or the center case. It's not just a bad drain bolt.

not much you can do other than drain the oil and replace the problem gasket. i dont think it would be your center case gasket. its most likely your clutch cover. i always put silicone on that gasket, or rely on silicone entirely.

thats if you break off all the bolts and have to easy out them. ;)
Throw in a good power nap and you have about an hour.
