'Helen' passed MOT again this year with flying colours, took the opportunity to take the tester for a quick spin round the industrial estate (gearbox oil leak check) and sure enough the leak is back...anyone any ideas? Pics tomorrow maybe

Not the input shaft seal, one of the joints at the rear of the box, replaced the gasket & was OK for a while, but its grapesing out.
