I may be nuts, but only for buses

Brian, you too are leaking copious amounts of oil?  what have you done so far to try to locate/fix the problem?  I have tightened up everything on/attached to the blower, and tightened the bolts attaching the blower to the block but it hasn't even slowed down the leak.

Some are called, some are sent, some just got up and went.

Clifford, what about the little oil line off the blower to that is about 3" long and flared on both ends?
I don't remember what tit goes to (maybe the alt.) been a long time since I had to fix one, but for a while (well actually until I fixed all of them on the buses around me) it seemed like a common problem on my uncles buses.  (been 8-9 yrs now though!)
