so does my rear main seal have a rubber or cork type gasket that may benefit?

You have a rear main seal leak?

Had it for 18 yrs. Causes me to go a quart low every 300 miles. Unless
its the thinner rings on my JE Pistons. But don't see smoke, and plugs
look good. When I pull into driveway, after driving, get about 3 tablespoons of oil on floor, so I assume
its dripping even worse when I am out driving?
