Brief Description:  Oil Leak found and fixed

Another issue after flights one and two was an oil leak. It showed as just drops. It took me a long time to find it, but I did. It was where the oil line goes into the transducer for pressure. I gave that nut a little pressure and it turned 90 degrees sealing the connection. Oil leak gone.

The only issue now is the slightly high EGT on #3. I cleaned and tested the spark plugs and have switched one of the plugs to #1 to see if that changes anything. If not, I'll swap the probe and see if the high reading follows the probe.
