A new customer called me regarding his Ford Prefect which was leaving a large patch of oil wherever he parked.

Sadly the car has been repaired once before but the issue was not resolved. Upon inspection I found the sump gasket was replaced and over tightened resulting in the cork splitting. The sump gasket seal half was also missing at the gearbox end. Quite shocking this could be missed by a “professional”.

New gasket kit installed, rocker cover was also resealed and a new intake manifold gasket installed.

No more leaky patches!
