Oil leak rod change seal
« on: April 27, 2020, 11:21:57 AM »
The minibeast has had a larger than I'd like oil leak for a while. Haven't had a really good look yet, but seems to be coming from the rear of the engine so I suspect the rod change seal. I have looked at the article in Mokeworx by Maddog that shows how to fix things.  I'm willing to have a go and got the parts listed ready to order.
Question from a newbey mechanic - will I have to drain the oil first? Will oil pour out when I remove the old seal?

Thanks in advance.  ;)

it will pour out if you remove the seal so i suggest you drain it first with the front of the car lower than the back so you get the oil out fo the diff area.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
