Oil Leak Additive

Can somebody give me input on oil leak additive. My 350 chevy engine has a small oil leak at rear main bearing. From what I've read , its OK or not worth a crap. I really don"t feel like dropping trans if I don't have to. Thanks

Bob

Most of those additives are junk,however I used the Barr's Leak brand on an old Ford and it slowed it down a bunch.
