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 1 miles of home we
spotted oil leaking through the bulk head, and upon closed inspection
found the bulkhead in the engine sprayed with oil, with the odd small
patch on other parts of the cengine. any ideas what caused this?

Not had chance to check the oil etc, as it didnt get hear to about 30
min ago and its 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

Don't know the diesel engine too well, but on the 2.25 petrol there is an
oil feed pipe that comes up the back of the engine on the right-hand side
and fits into a union on the back of the cylinder head. If that pipe were
loose or fractured, it would spray oil exactly where you say.
