Hi guys I've got a oil leak cant see where it's coming from but after cleaning the bottom of engine and running it can see it running down the back of the sump so thinking sump gasket or rear crank so ordered both but before I pull engine is there any other seals I should change at same time thanks

There’s an oil separator plate to the right of the rear crank shaft. The early ones were plastic with Philips screws. The upgrades are metal with hex bolts. The early ones can start leaking over time. You fix one oil leak and another starts...

That's what I've found fix one and another starts so I've just left this one for awhile don't really use any oil as it's very small leak but just getting annoying now leaving marks on drive guessing mine will still be Phillips screws with plastic cover so will look at changing it thanks

Good shout on both oil separator plate and cam cover gaskets/ half moons [emoji106]

From the factory the sump is just sealed with liquid threebond (no gasket) but I'd suggest to upgrade to a group n cork sump gasket .

If you do change the rear crank seal ffs dont push it in too far (just flush with chamfer). if you do push it in too far it will block the return to sump channel and leak like fook when it get up to temp...... trust me I've been there lol

Check the clutch and flywheel spigot bearing for wear too [emoji6]
