Hey good people - my poor old bus seems to be having some issues. I have oil apparently leaking out of the heater boxes ( and it's not coming from the rocker cover gaskets) - a significant amount of oil. I'm heading overseas until Christmas in a week - but would really appreciate an idea of what I might be facing before leaving. Two months ago my mechanical fuel pump died and filled the engine with fuel ( mixed with the oil). This was drained, fuel pump changed, new oil and oil filter. After driving it for about 50km ( over 2 weeks not all at once) I've just changed the oil and filter again. There appears to be the remains of a rubber seal and a few hard grainy bits of crud inside the oil strainer. 1975, 1800 type 4. hopefully the attached photos help with describing this - I'm new to my bus and still learning many things. Any ideas - please? Okay, right now I can't downsize the pictures enough even using a screenshot. I'll have access to a real computer tomorrow and shall try then.
