It also could have a splitline seal failure or a crack in the crankcase. A quick and dirty way to check for a bad oil seal is to spray starting fluid around the seal area, if your engine picks up a lot of RPM you probably have a bad oil seal.
i just ordered a new motor for 130 bucks problem solved.
