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.

Cheers Rick'

Thumbs up HGF issue.

Hi again sorry it has been so long since my last post-
My HGF issue resolved and all sorted.
To sum up. It started as an engine not turning over which turned out to be HGF.
Russell Walsh came to sort it, stripped, completed the work on the heads, unfortunately due to faulty parts ie camshaft seals failure resulting in an oil leak. Russell attended again replaced the seals but two weeks passed when a seal failed again. Thanks to Russell who came and sorted it out. That was over two weeks ago and all looks good at last. Coolant stays at the proper level with oil level constant so all is good with the car going A1.
Russell fitted the DMGRS version of the thermostat /housing all related clips etc etc so now I look forward to a period of normality with just the normal servicing to carry out including engine mount, suspension and brakes and front offside ABS sensor. I have had the sills-both sides welded / replaced and near side front wing replaced with the bodywork and paint sorted at last.
Thanks again to Russell who over the time managed to return to sort out any problems, turned up and just got the job done, this work must be routed in his soul. Thanks Russell.
Thanks to all who offered advice on this saga.
As always I remain the eternal optimist.
Cheers Rick
