Thanks thom4782,

I'm about 99% certain the bearing is the double row not the single row as my car and engine were made in the first quarter of the year of 2001. Other engine numbers right before and right after also appear to be double row, but I'm only a few bolts away from finding out for certain. I'll know either way as soon as I pull the transmission out on Monday.

My gut feelings say it's the RMS and crankcase bolts leaking, and if it is a double bearing, the IMS Solution or the DOF would be moot considerations as the LN double bearing should be good for at least the next 50k.
