    Winter job (oil leak)

    hi all , Iíve had an annoying oil leak for several years now which I think has to be addressed this year , the oil escapes from between the gearbox bell housing and the engine, Iím strongly suspecting itís the rear crankshaft oil seal , canít see oil escaping from rear of cam covers , I have BW65 gearbox, obviously the gear box and flywheel have to be removed, does the sump have to be dropped also , Iím assuming this job can be done with engine in situ , any tips and advice welcomed on this operation. Thx Graham

    If the gearbox is out, then it is easy to remove the sump without dropping the crossmember, so you may as well change the sump gasket at the same time. Make sure you get one of the decent, thicker, gaskets and not one of the paper thin ones.

        When you take the gear box out take it out with the torque converter
        its bolted on to the fly wheel with 4xbolts and is accessed through the starter motor hole itís a Fidel but doable
        good luck
