I replaced the main seal with the super duper one from A.R.E. I took care at all the gaskets, seals, etc. Drove the TR this morning about 40 miles. Parked it in the garage and an hour later moved the car back and found NO OIL DRIPS!! Yes there is oil in the crankcase. What a good feeling that a Triumph can be made to not leak oil. Or maybe I just got lucky...........

Good thing you don't live in the rust-belt.

I had the same feeling...for two weeks.

I thought leaking was a "feature".

O.k. now I feel better.
There is a drip (small one) at the oil filter head.....
The main seal is still dry.

Your car can't be an alpha male. Any self-respecting TR would be "marking it's territory" with oil drips.
