Ok, I know. It's a British car. They leak stuff. I fixed the coolant leak. Now I have an oil leak. I have replaced the oil pan gasket. I don't believe it is leaking from there. I have no idea where this leak is coming from and how it can possibly throw oil into the little pocket on the inner right hand side fender. The bottom of the generator is oily too. Any ideas suggestions? I'll try and post a picture.

..........Cheers, Alex

I had the same problem on my TR4. It turned out that only 2 of the 3 bolts on the Generator bracket were in place. The bolt hole goes clear through to the crank case so oil would come out but only when I was driving. The 3rd bolt fixed the problem.. no leaks at all. After that it's the usual places. Good luck..Alex... Alex

That's pretty funny. I only have 2 of the 3 bolts also. I was wondering but thought there's no way that could go all the way through. I'll put in a bolt and let you know. Thanks Alex
