Too much tightening of the pan bolts can deform the gasket and make the leak worse... 
Blow by can be readily observed by removing the oil filler cap when the engine is running. A strong stream of air means that the combustion gases are being pumped into the crankcase past the rings. Disconnect the valve cover vent hose and see if it is allowing gases to discharge into the rear carb. The vent may be clogged..

It's dry under generator plate, dry around both manual furl pump bolts. I saw the oil bubble up!
Wtf do I do now?  Bad sump gasket?????
