Thanks mate, I have seen that on here before and we will do it first thing Monday. Question is....will an oil leak from that balancer seal go into the combustion chambers or just soak your air filter?
Started it up this morning and there is a lot of black smoke in the exhaust over 4000 rpm
BTW there are no leaks anywhere.
Thanks - Martyn
