theres a slight strange leak of oil in engine bay....seen a drip of oil on top hose of radiator, just a drip..on underside of bonnet theres a slight spray of oil on offside front???? started it up with engine running cant see anything?
But to the side of radiator and on inner panel theres oil there?
I asked the owner he said he didnt know of anything, but i noticed the drip on top hose when i was buying it....he said there might be a leak and its dripping on the pulleys and thats were the sprayn on the underside of the bonnet is coming from...phew..
I need two front wings? Anybody know where I can get them?
I want to change oil? what type of oil should i use and where can i get a filter from? Oh I'm in Sidcup kent???
Need someone who can repair rust bubbles in paint, until i get back to work and get a proper paint/ repair with metal, rather than filler, oh it needs rear window ruber fitted???
Thanks , I love it.....:smoke:
Oh I need some tyres..prefer white lettered ones.....

If it's engine oil on the bonnet/top hose it'll most likely be the front crank seal leaking and the belts are throwing it around. Engine oil is usually 20w/50.
North hants tyres for the....tyres.
I can't help with the rest. The Kent residents on here will help no doubt..

'offside' can sometimes get confusing when talking about left hand drive cars , do you mean the drivers side or pas side? , if drivers side it could be too much oil in the pas box , @ full lock the pas oil will spray like a fountain out the bleed hole in power steering pump cap , it hits the underside of bonnet & drips over front hoses.

dont know if this will be of any help, but one way of tracking oil leaks is,
give the suspect area a good clean and let it dry, once dry give it a good dousing with talc/baby powder then run the engine and as it warms up any leaks will show up dark against the white powder
