I knew when purchased that it has a few issues before I even start digging! First 2 issues are a clutch that doesn’t want to play and a clutch pedal that’s bent at about 20 degrees off centre due to some twonk forcing the pedal which doesn’t move, second is the huge oil leak, seemingly from the timing cover.
So I got it collected by a very nice polish guy local to me who is trying to set up his recovery business and collected for just £75 for a round trip of about 90 miles.

So we got it home and I made sure I placed a tray under the cover and found a reasonable puddle in the tray the next morning. Seeing as I don’t want a garage floor full of oil I have decided to attack this first. A couple of hours in and this is the outcome.

And this! The cover gasket was also plastered so the PO did try and cure it and when it leaked again they just covered all edges which did nothing to cure the leak.

I got it off this morning and there are quite a few bolt holes raised where it has been over tightened and the face isn’t flat. I’ve tried to square it up but would rather a new one. The cover it seems is discontinued and I can’t get one. So if anyone has one available please pm me and let me know as I don’t want to do this job again.
