|Try to clean up all the oil that has already dripped. Is the leak while it is setting or when engine running, or in the air ? Pull off side panels after a flight, and use a flashlight to look up at the bottom of the engine, see if you can locate the area that it is dripping from.... Then start eliminating places, such as front of engine (electric or hydraulic prop?) Rocker covers, the base of cylinders, or pushrod tubes, the crankcase, right or left side of engine, or just rear of engine? If you can determine its not at front of engine, or around any of the cylinders, then yes the accessory case and accessories or oil tank area sounds like it. You may already have it narrowed down that that. Is the oil making a mess on the inside of the lower engine cowling or just leaking onto the ground below?
