    I meant the actual dripping with the car off, not that the seal wouldn’t be capable of leaking a bunch through on/off cycles.

    That pic to me shows a oily wet mess, was it actively leaking briskly with the car off as compared to with the engine running?

    Update on my leaking seal - so this is very hard to tell how much since the oil sits in the Belly pan before leaking on the floor - but it seem the leak has gotten better I am not seeing oil on the ground - I find this very puzzling seals normally don't fix themselves -
    I have driven the car several times in the last few weeks - road are still snow and salt free but not for much longer.
    Anyone have any thoughts ?
    The clutch is still good and the car runs really good?
    One note the car will soon be sitting for several months winter is coming!

    I am lost here, the throw out bearing is a bearing yes? no fluid to leak...you must be referring to the slave cylinder activating the bearing yes? I would be a little hesitant running bars stop leaking in the brake system but if you only bled the clutch...all fluids should head to the distribution block in the rear of the car and possibly not enter the braking systems....shared with the clutch...or is it different with the F1? are you F1? can't remember and too lazy to look back in the thread...cheers!

    Since the 348, Ferrari has a very unique design where the slave cylinder and the throw out bearing are integrated as one unit.

    I did an inspection after I noticed the pool on the ground - after removal of the belly pan the leak was between the engine and the transaxle - the clutch and pressure plate looked clean which would eliminate the slave as the leak -

    Clutch release bearing (aka commonly called throw out bearing) for these cars has a hydraulic slave built in.

    I believe the F1 & 3pdl parts are technically similar except different seals because of different fluid (f1 vs dot 3 brake fluid).

    Mine is a three pedal. Sorry forgot to mention that.

    My macgyver method wouldn’t work for a F1. I also wouldn’t put bars leaks into a F1 tranny, that would be a recipe for disaster for you and a new boat for your mechanic.

    Remainder of your points are valid and I believe addressed them in my post.
