More progress, well found two oil weeps under the motor, only done 95 miles so far. Seems to be leaking between the head and block. Just a very small weep :cry:

check lower head studs under rocker gear , usually need to use sealant aviation goo style to stop oil weeping
Straight axle is better than IRS

Had my first wedding in the bus last week and it drove on the freeway like a champ :) Only problem is the brakes are total crap so i bought a remote booster for it, now to mount it and see how we go.
Feel like a rock star driving it as everyone looks and points!!
