I am leaking oil from the bottom allen bolt of my oil filter cover. Is it most likely something simple, like a worn rubber gasket?

Thanks in advance for any thoughtful comments.

Try replacing the three rubber o-rings under the cover.

That's what I'm thinking. Thanks for the help.

Your advice is sound, because it was the first thing that I checked. I've stripped it before, but not this time.
