    More pics to follow but all sorted (at last): Shot blast disk and painted inside, powder-coated spring, all new bolts, brake re-build, all painted and set-up. Had lots of fun finding all odd thread sizes etc. Most complex was buying 3 different spring clamps then eventually making own to remove spring,...

    Front engine oil leak solved,.. there’s a small hole in the Aux drive shaft cover plate, the hole alignment was in the middle of the rear of the seal, oil was dripping through it!

    Part no: 72HM-6059-AA

    Where the case circles are the alloy is very thin the other side is not far off wearing through also,.. will TIG weld both up tomorrow.

    It was leaking quite bad, looks from the rear to have pushed the spring out of position so I guess the seal collapsed?

    Going ��
    Oil leak sorted,.. not a drop however now developed an issue with timing belt, wants to walk off Cam pulley after 10 mins running. All stripped again (yes was tight). Aux pulley is slightly proud of bottom crank pulley (2mm) and approx 5mm out from Top Cam pulley? Presume they should all be bang on? Never noticed before but not had issue?

    Also noticed a tiny amount of movement in Aux pulley shaft (dizzy drive)?
