Hi, I am going to make a concerted effort this winter to to resolve three annoying oil leaks. The first two are from the kickstart shaft and gear lever on the outer gearbox cover ( pre mk3) I have checked out the history of this topic on the forum but are unsure of the best way forward. Lip seals are recommended by some owners for the kickstart shaft leak.Does this involve engineering work - if so could some one tell what needs to be done and where is the best place to get the seal (uk) Other owners recommend the use of an X ring - where can these be purchased. What about the gear lever shaft - is this a case of using a lip seal and could anyone supply me with a code no. for it . If I was to go this route what engineering work needs to be done and where do I get the seal from. Alternatively is there an X ring available for this.. Finally I have a leak at the top of my rev counter drive I understand that this too can be rectified with a little engineering work and a different seal could anyone please supply details. I have contacted RGM about getting this work done but they are snowed under with work and it could take a (very) long time. Thanks in anticipation.
