.possible leak from poor mating surface or a foreign body?
Surely that would have shown up sooner?. :w
Unless the bolts have worked loose, in which case it`s time to investigate.

Scimitar se5a oil pressure feed pipe?

If you get a proper Hex socket on it it Will unscrew.
I have removed a few over the years and they have always unscrewed.
They are a very robust item. :wink:

It`s not the Block fitting that matters, it`s the adaptor that the pipe screws onto.

There are Two distinct types.
I have one that`s Metric and another that`s Imperial. :w

Oil pumps

Having never come across a HP Cologne pump I can`t possibly comment. BUT a friend of mine who worked at AE Federal Mogul did tell me the ONLY difference on the Essex pump was the relief valve spring pressure. Slightly stronger on the HP, same result can be had by inserting a washer under the spring?...

Cologne dipstick.

Hi Mark
Yes there is a very thin black O ring.
If the engine is in good order you should not have any blowback probs.

Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

Cost me an arm and a leg when I bought my first Honda, prior to that I had Robin`s that you could take apart with 5 spanners, 1/4", 5/16",1/2",7/16" and 1/2" UNF.

Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

Yes it was the bolts, peculiar to Japanese Vehicles.

Apart from using silly sizes of metrical fixings, a lot of the stuff is actually Imperial.
A throw back to when we exported/licenced our own stuff. :wink:
Just look at wheel studs and pitches on Nissan Z250 which is the same as GTE/C/MB 8)

Phil you don`t need to push it ALL the way through, JUST enough to extract the rod from the block. Then when it drops off you can finish the dismantling. I can see its a Japanese box :?: :?: :?: . They would have thought about how it comes apart, they are pretty good at that, so I would have thought...

Maybe a daft question - split pin removal

Other option is to just punch it all the way through, there may be a chance of it having enough clearance?, If not try twisting the rod so it bends the pin and curls it up enough to get it a bit further through till it drops out. The Robin gearbox pins were assembled the same and you had to destroy ...

Phil try get a blob of weld on it, then weld a nut to try twist it out. IF it dont work and the welded nut pulls free then you have heated the Carbon spring steel pin enough to soften it. start a thread on it and screw an M5 ?. bolt into it. These roll spring pins only need a bit of Red Heat to make...

Split in the spring pin would need blocking off or the grease will just escape :wink:
