Hang on a minute Rick! What makes you think this? Can you give some detail please?
What colour is the oil/fluid you've seen? Where exactly have you seen it?

Let's examine the evidence and try to identify the problem in detail rather than lurching into thoughts of replacing the gearbox!

Thumbs up HGF 75 issue

Ok, further to my 1st conclusions I have had time and 2 beers to rationalise the situation. So now I have jacked her up and from what I have seen I have reason to believe there is an oil leak from wait for it -- from both cylinder heads ?! apart from a coolant leak in the "V" again. So as I said - a Scot' a capatalist and a mercenary human being to boot ! I am keeping a lid on the situation.

I am waiting to hear from Russell to come and access the situation and decide on the remedy and on a fix.

I will keep you posted and give ANY update as soon as possible.
NO conclusions as yet.

Yes- I jumped to the conclusion that it had to be a gearbox situation as the engine had been sorted !? Hinde site is a wonderful thing.
