Have you checked above the leak via the engine cover id to see if you can get a better view of where it is coming from.  Just seen this on JK maybe of use, it also states that T25 from 85 onwards fitted with two switches one behind water pump and other between pushrod tubes.

It is the oil switch, garage fortunately had a spare. Hopefully that should sort it.

Just out of interest did the warning light come on to alert you to the leak?

No. Bit of luck I saw it really, before heading onwards. All seems good after a drive this afternoon.

The pot holes on our roads and motorways are nothing short of a disgrace (they even have 'pothole insurance' as an optional add on to your policy to charge you even more money now) - glad you managed to get it sorted  :ok
