oil leak

Hi guys

My Dad has just driven back our 1960 series 2 from Leeds to Newcastle
(approx 100 miles) and in tradtinoal Land Rover fashion, it went wrong.
The car made it all the way back but upon reaching about a mile of home
we spotted oil leaking through the bulk head, and upon closer inspection
found the bulkhead in the engine bay sprayed with oil, with the odd
small patch on other parts of the engine. any ideas what caused this?

Not had chance to check the oil etc, as it didnt get hear to late last
night and it was a bit dark to start checking oil, etc.

Vehicle details,

1960 swb
2.24 disel
oveerdrive
series 3 gearbox (gearbox jumps out of second once in a while, could
that be related?0

Thanks in advance, Phil

My series 3 did this big time when the pipe running to the oil cooler
developed a small hole. Once the engine was switched off it was
difficult to see as everything was covered in oil.
I suggest you mind your eyes when you start it up with the bonnet up to
try and find the leak.

Neither series11 or 111 had oil coolers as standard in the UK AFAIK.
It could be a fractured head feed pipe or it could be that the filler cap
has come loose or it could be anything really. Let us know the reason when
you find it in due course.

My S3 had an oil cooler and I was told (TICHBTW) that it was a standard
fitment. On reflection though, I think you're right. I wonder if MOD
Landrovers had this??? though mine had never AFAICT been a MOD vehicle.

If they were non-standard then it's unlikely to help, but the leak on mine
was in a 3/4 od pipe running vertically from the base of the engine block up
the bulkhead and just before it went into a 90degree union to another pipe
to then go to the cooler near the front of the engine bay. Looking at the
engine from the front the pipe was to the right of the engine lump and
clipped onto the bulkhead. Quite hard to see with all the crap that was
there on mine till it got cleaned up a bit ..

IF you have an oil cooler; it will look like a staring little radiator
positioned in front of the main radiator. It will have 2 pipes running
to it from each side.
If you follow these back you will find they are connected to the engine.
Mine had 2 sections that were flexible to allow for the movement of the
engine while driving. One of my flexible sections (no jokes please) had
been rubbing against something and this was the cause of the spray of
oil.
