Re: Fuel pump leaking oil.

Cheers again. I will look at getting one asap. The carbs are brand new so shouldn't be a problem. I will search the site anyway but is there a particular one you recommend and is it a simple enough did task?

Re: Fuel pump leaking oil.

Thankyou again Covkid. You have given me advice before re the fitting of a facet pump when I was repairing a fuel line feed into it. I think the time may have come to fit one. I will look over what you advised me previously. I'm assuming it's the rather extreme angle of my driveway that's making the...

Fuel pump leaking oil.

Hello there, a little advice please. Having just returned from a 2000 mile trip around Europe with our good ol van performing handsomely I've parked up on our sloped drive and noticed that half of my engine oil has dropped out drip by drip via the drain pipe from the mechanical fuel pump. It's the o...

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Just incase anybody ever reads this I will update. The spigot bearing and gearbox input shaft seal were replaced but this didn't do the job. I have now had the engine out AGAIN and have replaced the crank seal and fly wheel oil seal. This seams to have done the trick. The flywheel oil seal did appea...

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Hi oldie. No crack. I have to assume the oil leak was from the gearbox input shaft seal. I have a replacement ready to go. Does anybody know what to do with the spigot bearing? I have a new one I'm just wondering whether or not it should be greased or dry.
Any help greatfully received.

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Okey that blows that theory then, ha. I'm pretty sure the puddle always smelt like normal engine oil.. Back to the drawing board. How do I get pics up guys is it through photo bucket? Can't find out how to do it, this may help a diagnosis. Thanks.

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Hey Ermie, sorry for delay. Well I'm none the wiser really. There was definitely oil in the housing between engine and box. It is not obvious where it's coming from thou? The seals on the engine side and o ring behind fly wheel are new and appear to be fitted properly. The spigot bearing is missing ...

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

By way of an update i got itchy feet today and dropped the engine myself, the housing was indeed contaminated with oil. Will take clutch off tomorrow to see where the leak is coming from. The hole where the aforementioned spigot bearing should be looks a bit messy with a rusty slimey deposit, this c...

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Cheers Ermie, no guarantee as such, it's a professional who was a friend of a friend if you like so shouldn't be a problem. Will give him the chance.

Re: oil leak on Aircooled engine following rebuild.

Hi guys thanks for the msgs, I would rather not say who rebuilt the engine at the moment in fairness as I think I should give him the oppounity to fix the problem. I take it the general consensus is that this is a real problem that I should aproach him about? I have planned to try and drop the engin...
