    L322 has a tiny coolant leak on the LPG Vap...needs attending too....

    Now I have changed the fuel tank on the Ninety (Bast**d job) the only other thing that leaks is the N/S swivel housing!

    No leaks since I replaced the RAD last October, but then it's a reliable diesel:D

    Seem to be oil and coolant leak free since changing the valley gasket and front timing cover about a month or two back.

    Theres still a load of oil coating the underside of the engine from when I was leaking like a sieve though. I'll get around to cleaning that off soon, hopefully.

    OK. There might be a slight stickyness on the near-side half-shaft which could be an oil-seal leak but I've cleaned it and watchful waiting to see if it current or not.

    Get the U hose sorted ASAP before you go on your next trip. And carry a spare. Use jubilee clips on it, leaks from that can give you serious airlock and overheating problems.
