I found a grease leak where the grease trough on the right empties into the drain tube. The grease ends up on the bottom around the drain tube. The tube is spot welded to the trough. The tube is bigger than the drain hole in the trough, and I figure that RT thought that the oil would just drip down the inside of the tube. Duh! It seeps sideways and leaks out the space not welded. Seems just on one side. So I cleaned (and cleaned) the surfaces all around the outside of trough and tube, and then used alcohol to pick up any residue. Then used high temp caulk to seal around. First on the side leaking, (see Pic). And the leaking stopped. Then I went ahead and sealed all 4 sides, although the back side was a blind job. Rechecked with oil and water both and no leak. I have seen another c/o of the same thing elsewhere so I thought my report might help. There should be no grease leaking to the bottom of the drum. Keeping the pit level also is a good thing.
