Happy New Year to everyone. I have had a slight oil leak from the head gasket area on my 74 Commando since I bought it two years ago and wondered if anyone has had similar leaks and whether or not it is anything to worry about. The leak is quite minor spraying a bit of oil on the front parts of the side covers and frame after a 100 mile ride. Appears to be coming from the front part of the engine and then migrating around and spraying off the back of the cylinder fins while driving. Is this most likely a leak from the pushrod tunnels? What can be done about it and do I need to do anything immediately?
