its 100% oil from compressor, i watched it bubble out of a hole in the center of the bolt. i did the heads, and oil pump last year after i burned a valve. all gaskets are holding, not a drop of oil on the motor.

Could it be refrigerant leaking from the compressor?
There should be oil in the refrigerant so it may appear to be oil when in fact in might be “oily” refrigerant.

yes it is oil and refrigerant leaking refrigerant going into the air and oil is dripping. but its not from a crack or seam its a bolt with a hole in the center almost like a petcock or drain. but i touched it and it started leaking more
