Oil leak on 1995 G 14 A Yamaha golf cart

I live in upstate NY and have stored my cart in my cold garage on blocks with the battery in my warm cellar. As a result my cart has not been started in the wintertime for the past 12 years.
A couple of days ago while gassing up I noticed oil on top of the head (I think) located directly behind and below the oil refill. I never see any oil spots on the ground in my parking space, It does bubble up from the top when the gas pedal is depressed.

Two questions and one request. 1. Could I loosen the top bolts and squeeze in gasket sealant to hopefully solve the problem?
2. If that does not work I must replace the gasket. A repairman said it would cost me 500.00 to replace the gasket. If the gasket must be replaced could someone send me detailed instructions on replacing the gasket?

Thank you
