Default Gasket between the motor and oil filter housing leaking down back of motor

Have a 1993 Accord with a nasty oil leak lately. Has not been do for an oil change so I have no bothered to crawl under there. Muffler place doing warrenty work on the exhaust said the oil is coming from the oil fitler housing gasket.

Is this like an O-ring that sets into the motor? Or like something along the lines of an oil pan or valve cover gasket?

Here is a link to some part numbers, I think #33 is my part, but not sure.

Yes, that is fairly common for that big 'O' ring to get hard and leak.
It's also called the intercooler O ring.
