If it's leaking behind the flywheel, your front bearing is most likely the problem

You'll have to find the dimensions of your bearing and get a new one.

here's a vid to disassemble the engine. Same concept between the engine in the vid and your .21 or .28 or whatever engine

and then when you get to the bearings, there are various ways to getting it out. Bearing Puller tool, puttng the case on a heat source to expand the metal, etc...

good luck, but in your situation, i'd have a more experienced person help you out... or get a new engine. how old is it?

I cant believe that video skipped the bearings! That's the toughest part! and Danny's biggest problem
