Hunting down an oil leak.

So I noticed there is a small oil leak on my garage floor now that the car has been sitting for a while. After a while of inspecting and following sources, I came across the following.

The head rests on the block and where you see the 2 arrows is a little bit of a ledge from the block. There is some oil pooled on top of the ledge. Looking around I see oil on the two plugs above circled in red.

I will have a better look tomorrow but I am thinking there should be no leaks from the plugs since they are plugs for water. Possibly coming from the valve cover seeping down that way? I need further investigating. However, just to be double sure, those two plugs are for water. Correct ???

That is a nice looking spitfire. I particularly like it in white since it gives it a larger appearance.

Is that emerald green? That was my favorite color! Had a slightly bluish tone to it.

Keith, your TR6's twin is done Smile After a long 18 months she is running and looking better than when I picked her up.

If you buy new CV rear axles from rimmer brothers make sure you tell them to check them prior to shipping. One of my axles arrived with a tear in the boot and it's almost impossible to get support from them. I patched it.

I just noticed the gauges. I am really liking the white dials. Now you have me rethinking my instrument cluster Smile

Oh wow! What a beautiful TR. I like the two mirrors. I will need to get an extra one for my passenger door.

Contrary to what the Bently books says, You simply cannot slide the old tensioner out. It's too wide. You have to remove the retaining pin.

Do these timing marks look odd?

Original damper is the gray one. The new one is the black one. However, the timing marks on the new one for BTDC don't jive with the old ones. I know I can always just subtract 4 from the numbers to get it to match. Just wondering why its this way.

Powder coated a lot of things prior to assembly. Now I realize the front plate needs to be stripped. If the heat exceeds 400 degrees it will melt the powder coat and potentially run into the engine. Bad planning on my side.

Maybe I am wrong so am open to hear back from others.

Impressive looking hub. Was it an easy job to install? I have to replace my trailing arm and am wondering what is involved with the hub removal. Im so tired of working on my car, I'm about to give up Frown

At first glance I thought it was a TVR Tasmin. The body panels really enhance the look and give it a much more muscular stance. Love it!
