give it a quick taste to see which hole it came out of

There's not many places it coulda came from.
Hard oil lines at the head,
breather tubes,
oil pressure sensor....

there are o-rings for the cyl studs -
might oughta retorque your heads.
those head gaskets look like they might need some help.

Wow that line was amazing haha.

Beautiful bike. Riding an unknown bike home is always interesting.

I had a similar leak from the left side valve cover gasket which took a 5 euro gasket and ten minutes to fix, but it looks like your oil leak is a bit lower, maybe the head gasket. Pop over to wildguzzi.com and search.

Nice score Kev.
These things are rare over this side of the pond, I don't think they were sold here such a shame as it is such a great looking bike

Blood's right, stick your finger in the wet spot. Is it petrol, motor oil, or tranny lube?
BMW's do it inside, Guzzi's do it outside!





The oil rebreather assembly.... pay particular attention to part # 48. A serpentine oil tube with multiple connections!

Following on from the helpfull microfiche lpages above:-

Stein Dinse is handy. They have an interactive parts list linking to available spares http://www.stein-dinse.biz/eliste/index.php just click on the part number to pop up a window giving the availability and price.

Thank you, most helpful.

I bought some new parts today, clutch cable, points, condensor, and choke plungers. Roll on the weekend.

Here's the list that accompanies fiche 4. Parts numbers for Guzzi's aren't as good as BMW, but a lot of 'em still work.

Do any of you have an MPH speedometer you would be willing to part with, and maybe a starter switch/button? or know where I may find either of these parts

Your speedometer can be rebuilt, will be more reliable and accurate than any used original if done by North Hollywood Speedometer and Clock: http://www.nhspeedometer.com/ .

Starter button is easy (at least for those of us in the USA). MG Cycle has them for $28.45: http://www.mgcycle.com/product_info.php?products_id=959 and Greg Bender also sells them for $18.75: http://thisoldtractor.com/gtbender/f...ng_harness.htm (look down near the bottom of the page).

Thanks for the info Charlie, great help, so now I know where to get a starter button, I guess I need to find the bracket that it goes in, and fits to the bars?
Can anybody help with this part?
