    There you go. It's like this Lancia Astura we are restoring. You can see some of the wood framing around the rear wheel arch and door frame. It was very common in European cars, especially one with hand built bodies.

      As far as I know, no seals have been replaced recently lol.

      it comes in 15 50 not 20 50, which sounds perfect.

      thats what I used although it does not need synthetic, it lasts longer.

      Ive only changed the oil twice, and when I did there was a really good sale on store brand synthetic so I went for it.

      but I would change it with dino oil.

      I think its made it about 8k on oreilly synthetic and still looks good.
      Thanks guys.

                    I want to cry, my damn crankshaft seal is leaking. I know it, from everyone else's experience with it. Coming home from work to that sucks, I'm just too damn tired to feel all this emotion. Night

                    Edit: Could be the pan gasket, because I remember using a flathead to get the cover gasket over the pan & moved the seal some MM's. This mistake is nothing short of two days.

                      That's shitty dude! Maybe it's just grease from your flywheel bolts, throwout bearing, etc.

                      Glad you got it on the road though. Changing the seal is not hard. You can have that tranny out in a few hours.

                              This. Something similar happened to me when I put more memory in my ECU.

                                Well my car is getting closer to the condition I want to sell it in.
                                Tonight I got a little to-do list:
                                FPR
                                fuel filter
                                Temp sender & sensor
                                Some coolant hose that's swollen
                                Inner CV boot on Passenger front axle

                                annnnd that's should be enough for today...

                                Monday fun day! Still have a more to do. Hopefully I'll have this thing sold and a new e30 before the Port Townsend cruise.
