Looks like it. But shouldnt i just get coolant leaking from there? So could be a water pump?

Pretty sure that the front of the waterpump seals the coolant and the rear seals oil from the engine/trans.

Mine was leaking coolant...I replaced it last summer by following the tutorial in the gl1100 DIY articles. Not a quick-fix by any stretch but simple enough. Plan on taking your time and getting all the surfaces nice and clean. Here's where I got my kit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-1975-1983 ... 464d98c8a6 ...all OEM parts and gaskets..everything you need and nothing you don't.
