Hi MG and Sprite World,
1/ Many thanks to all who advised concerning my oil leak problem.
The source of the leak ...
I whipped off the carbs and heat shield to find traces of the black sticky oil
spray around the bolt securing the lower right hand cover on the cylinder
block. There must have been a fair amount of pressure behind this leak at it
had sprayed around over the exhaust and chassis. I removed the bolt, inpected
it then replaced it. The Moss catalogue indicates that a rubber washer is
missing. I'll get one next time I place an order with Moss.
2/ Next job is to swap over the handed rear wire spoke hubs as each is fitted
to the wrong side i.e. LH is on RHS and RH is on LHS. Which is easier - swap
the extensions or swap the halfshafts ? Anyone got any pictures ?
