    Head gasket and high pressure oil leak!

    Hi, so I have a 1999 defender 110 TD5. Recently it developed a pressurised coolant system which was a failing head gasket leading to exhaust in the coolant.

    cylinder head oil pipe

    I recently removed the head from the 2.25L petrol engine in my Series 3. There is an oil pipe from the block to the head at the rear. When I got the engine back together, oil was leaking from that pipe where it attaches to the head. I could find no torque specifications for the bolt and so had...
