1.6td crankshaft end float & oil leak question

Post by camper »

I have a 1.6td M11 golf engine installed in the T25.There is an oil leak coming off the bolt from the gearbox on to the sump.My thoughts are could there be a crack in the sump.Due to sump change over and bolts tightened up not pinch tight before gearbox bolted up.I noticed a leak coming off around gearbox bell housing in front of the bolt as well.I carnt see a crack but it may be where the gearbox bolt is screwed in the casing .I am going to remove the gearbox as to replace with a 2ltr one.I will replace the crankshaft oil seal and will check the end float .Can anyone offer advice as to what the end float should be.If it needs shims are they easlly obtainable.I will look at the sump at the same time to see if there is a crack wich may need removal to check.Any ideas or advice appreciated.
