Small leak @ the angle drive,done the housing seal and while under the car found the leak was coming out the cable drive and leaking down there.
Sure I had a shaft seal that I bought some time ago and after a search think I found it.
Can anyone confirm it is 10 x 18 x 6mm ?.
TIA.

Tip on removing the old seal. Carve out the pladtic with a knife. Screw in a lug bolt (14 x 1.5 ). It will catch the lip of tbe metal vup and pull it out.
The washer sticks to the top of the seal. Dig it out first.
I have a new batch of the speedo drive bushings reworked with the second groove to
reduce leaks. Or if you have access to a lathe cut a second groove the same size as the oroginal groove.
