Distributer oil leak

Post by demag » Fri Apr 04, 2014 10:31 pm

I assume this will be the o ring. Are they easy to get hold of? It's not pumping out but running down onto the thermostat.

Doh sorry. I must have been having a senior moment earlier. It's the fuel pump that is leaking at the base gasket not the dizzy! :oops: Is there an o ring in there or just a gasket?

ok bud

i get them there senior moment quite often these days #-o :roll: :wink:

a mechanical pump usually has two gaskets one each side of a backerlight spacer block,

the block can crack if its over tightened,
the gaskets you can make out of a cereal box

thinking about the gaskets maybe cereal box card could be a bit tooooo think,

it needs to be single skin card but maybe not quite as thick as Kellogg's

thats if you dont have any gasket paper to hand

Looking again I noticed the leak appears to be coming from the top of the pump where the swage line is. Petrol maybe? There's always been a petrol smell on this car. So anyway saw a new one on ebay for 12 quid so ordered that.
