Leaking X-flow oil pump - advice please

Big Brother

Recommended Posts

I have finally traced the oil leak on my 1700 Superspring Seven.

It looks like the oil is escaping past the end plate on the oil pump.


This is a early type pump - with the smooth end plate.

A friend says there should be a rubber "O" ring under this plate and its is probably this that has failed.


Is this correct??? and if so, is the O ring easy to change in situ or does the pump need to be removed from the car?


Also is anything likely to go "ping" when I take the cover off?








Less is more!
