ok it has been some time since i started looking into this and i think i have a good theory,
What i know. .... there is oil pooling in the bottom plastic shield and dripping out on the right hand side,
I found the oil was coming via the bottom of the oil filler tank via the O ring, so i put a new one in and sealed it up, with the oil cap off i turned it over for a sec and found the oil was now coming up and out the filler point, then running down, so this would make me think the scavenging pump is sending oil to the cooler then tank and getting blocked by the oil lubrication pump, if that pump does not take the oil and pass it through the engine it will have to come out somewhere,, ie the filler point.
i have checked the hose going from the bottom of the oil tank to the bottom of the engine and no blockages there, next step is to take off the oil pumps cover and check the pumps out .. has anyone done this yet? what should i look out for?
and should i need a new pump who or where is the best place to get it ?
thanks very much guys
