I had another look at Kostenlot and it appears that the engine block is indeed cracked. It has been steadily dripping oil for quite a while now from somewhere around the cam cover - without looking I assumed the gasket needed replacing. Three days ago I refilled the radiator and by last night there was a puddle of emulsion in the middle of the oil. It's not the pump - that's dry. Given it's (almost) unknown history, there's a very high chance the PO was unaware that it was damaged.

Hands up front - one from Motorworks would cost £515 including shipping and I just don't have that much spare cash. Y'know - pensioners crying poor again Very Happy

I'll take that please Craig. March is fine - Dublin Port is only 90 miles away. I can Paypal you again closer to the date or bring the equivalence in Euros if that helps. Finding you should be relatively easy; just pull up in the Top filling station in the port.

I dumped the fluids out of the engine about an hour ago. The sump was more water than oil. It's not the head gasket because I changed that when I first found what looked like coolant in no.1 cylinder. As I took the old one off I inspected it very carefully for cracks and telltales - nothing. I was equally as careful when putting the new one on. I guess it could be the base gasket but I think that's unlikely.

No problem. Any idea when it was last run? I'm not worried about the usual 'rubber problems' because I'll have an engine to raid for parts.

Thank you. So a bit of a scrub-up and it can go straight in the frame - job's a good'un.
