Great job, Tom. I bet you've learned a lot along the way that will help you in your other mechanical endeavors. :D
Did you use a RTV (silicone) sealant on the gasket? If so, did you allow it to completely dry before you added oil? I've found that any oil contamination on silicone will eventually leak. Although it's a PIA to clean it off, I use Permatex #2 or Hi Tack sealant, or Indian Head gasket shellac on my older stuff. It's old technology, but it works.
