Thanks CN, After about 4 hours of working on my OFH gasket installation and also replacing the freeze plug seals, supposedly I didnt insert the seal properly and it started leaking again. ill give another go at it tmw. Thx for the DIY
Actually your 1994 325i uses O-ring and plug and a Ring to hold it in.
This is the E34 setup:

The E39 uses stake-punched in "Welch" Plug type with no O-ring at all.

But anyway, for E34, you need to press the O-ring in really tight, then the plug, then the Ring. Make sure you use the correct O-ring. People who used slightly off O-ring develop leaks again! Search E34 forum!
