1979 280 SL with a 280SE engine in it

Greetings -

Thank you for the warm welcome. I look forward to receiving some very valuable information from your forum members. I'm afraid I know almost zip about cars, but if I can help another member out, I will be happy to lend support any way I can. I purchased this little gold car last year and it ran like a top. This past winter it sat for about 4 months. (After reading your forum, I now know that is a bad thing). An oil leak has manifested itself, and I would appreciate some help in getting this issue resolved. The front part of the engine on the driver's side houses a small, vertically placed cylindrical piece about 1 inch in diameter and about 2 inches high. It has a little bolt that is screwed into the center portion. When the bolt is removed, a small attached flange is exposed. The lower part of this little flange is leaking oil, and the oil is running down the engine. I hope I've given enough information to identify the problem. Thank you,
