My '66 A65 is "finished" and I'm very happy with how it runs but it leaks oil at an intolerable level.
It is hard to tell where it is coming from but I suspected the oil pipe so I put in square O-rings from McMaster. Still leaks.
Has anyone tried a gasket here or a sealer with the O-rings?
The oil drips from a low spot on the oil pipe itself or sometimes the frame but it is hard to tell the source.
I also suspect the joint between the case and the transmission inner cover.
There is a gasket of course and I think I used Yamabond on one side and greased the other.
So before I take the inner cover off to check and all the kickstart and timing disassembly that goes with it,
is that a likely joint to leak? Is there much oil sitting behind that cover given the pump is clearing the sump effectively?
I don't think it's coming from anywhere else like the sump cover or the pressure release. It is engine oil.
By the way if anyone wants a couple of the O-rings, PM me your address. I've got 100.
