Default Massive oil leak

My 2006 Gallardo developed a bad oil leak. Pulled bell housing clutch and
pressure plate full of oil. Have new clutch setup ready to go. Also have rear main seal. Rear timing cover question. Can you remove and reseal without
damaging head gaskets? Going to do smoke test on engine to be sure about
leak. Do not want to but back together without making sure leak is fixed.
Any input? Thanks Edward

Was not engine. Found thrust bearing went bad. When pulled apart oil ran out of bell housing and clutch full oil. The car has 40,000 miles on it and looks like had old style
thrust bearing in it. Looked nothing like the new one I got even though the clutch was
almost like new. Someone cut corners. GTE was 1 day turn around on clutch rebuild.
Got back together just waiting for guy to come with program to set clutch. Thanks for asking

Timing belt cover are a common culprit and serious labor to replace the seal. I have seen these pulled without replacing the seal or rear main for some unknown reason-its already apart and easy cost effective preventive maintenance

Did reseal one timing cover with Anaerobic sealer . Did replace rear main seal and
pilot bearing and clutch sensor. Clutch rebuild with Kevlar from GTE Engineering and
best price around on Clutch sensor and thrust bearing Scuderia out of UK. 2 day shipping.

Thank you for the tips. We'll take a look at it right after we finished installing the exhaust and blue ox towing parts on the pick up truck plus the wiring. Hope the issue on the Gallardo isn't that bad.
