I am floored, it looks like after two days without a drop leaking it's leaking from the main reservoir seal. I put a new one damn it, I will pull the darn thing apart and see if I can do something with it. It looks perfectly normal, I can't figure this out.

No, this system works I just need to figure out a simple leak! If I did anything I would buy a new motor/pump. But I WILL fix this original pump damn it!

I know you have already looked at it. Is there any rust or roughness on the shaft that could damage the seal?

John, I didn't even look! But I don't believe it's leaking from that one anyway. It looks like it's leaking from the most unlikely one to leak. The reservoir seal it's self, no moving parts, one large O ring that goes around the whole thing. It's bolt is as tight as I can get it without clamping the thing in a vice and tightening it. I am going to have to pull it apart and see if somehow the inside of that O ring isn't pinched weird or something.

I understand now. Hopefully that will be easy to diagnose when you get it out. I know you have to be about "over it" by now. Good luck.

Ok, I found that the motor did have a bunch of fluid in it. But it was pretty funky looking so I don't think it's from after I re-sealed it. I turned it up on it's side to drain it out completely before I continue. But I came up with the idea to tape a little piece of paper towel on the underside at all the seams to figure this out. I know it sounds like I am just wasting time, pull it apart and reseal it or what ever I am sure you are saying. Yeah that makes since except I already did that! The fluid is so thin it finds it's way all over and it's hard to nail it down. But I am narrowing it down. I hope to get that rear seat and top well all in there this weekend.

How about a good spray down of the inside of the motor with electrical parts cleaner and then let it drain out ? Just a thought .

Yeah that's the right thing to do and I am probably going to break down and do that, the reservoir needs to come off anyway.

I finally got the Anglia home after it being in storage for a few months.
getting around to building a interior floorboard subframe,
The frame has such a forward angle to it that , getting it set up the way I want it to sit, and getting the front wheels to clear the fenders when turning, is presenting a problem,,
I want the car LOW ,, like the wheels buried under the fenders,
I need to get ride heigth set before building the floorboards,
I had to narrow the front section of the frame by 4 " to even get the tires inside the fenders, and its still to wide,,
I"mthinking maybe widening the front fenders by 1 1/2 inches each side, to get it to work out ,,
Just don't like this nose up look,, whatta ya think

With your determination to have it sit low, you'll just have to do what is necessary to make it driveable. I would raise the body, but you said that is not an option for you.

I'm not seeing the "nose up look".

Don't ask me though, if you should add 1-1/2" to the fenders cause I'll say go for it. I just love cutting stuff up whether it needs it or not.

Thanks Brian.

I have a long weekend to try and get the two plates fitted in and welded.

I'd like to get at least one done properly this weekend. I've got to take my time as everything I've done quickly has come back to bite me.
