Default 2002 PT oil leak

Hi fellow PT owners from New Zealand.
6 years on from buying a Friday afternoon lemon, another $NZ4000 bill looms.

Can anyone explain what part is missing from the photo showing here.

The picture shows to the right of the torchlight, a gap between the head and block oil return line(?).

This view is from the front of the car looking directly at the engine, 2.0L, just near the end of the starter motor.
The gap is about 2mm wide.
Anyone offer any fix method other than stripping the whole engine (again!)

If it is leaking from between the two pieces there should be a gasket. If you have one and want a temp solution. Clean the area very good, then smear some RTV on the area. Push it into the crack and all around that seam. If the area is dry enough and you stuff it in enough, you might just stop the leak. 7/10 it doesn't work, but pair it with some oil stop leak. You just might get it.
