Thoughts, leak at one oil pan bolt

I replaced the stock oil pan with the BRS deep pan and I now have a drip coming through one of the bolts. At the next oil pan, I plan on dropping the pan and resealing it., any thoughts on how I can repair it in the interim or should I just bite the bullet and do it now?

why don't you first try removing the leaking bolt and apply thread sealer on it?

Just leave it. A little drip wont hurt anything. I would not start putring sealant in the bolt hole

Yeah but i dont think its leaking through thr threads, but rather through a gap in the silicone on the sealing surface. Either way if hes gonna redo next oil change i wouldnt mess with it

I already had Loctite on the threads. I agree wiht quad, I believe the link is a gap in the seal. Thanks for the thoughts, I'll drop it at the next oil change and reseal it.
