    Is there a common place for oil to leak on a (1992) 512TR with 15k miles on it?

    We're also looking for a tool kit and a used (ha) Tubi exhaust to go with the rear window we're searching for.

    Top three:

    1 - front engine oil line fittings
    2 - drain plugs (tank and engine)
    3 - valve cover corners

    There are two very common sources of oil leaks
    1. Engine
    2. Gearbox

    Anywhere at anytime, usually the result of sloppy maintenance/abuse ie over or under tightening of fastenings and poorly applied/incorrect sealants.

    If you had 30000 mile belt service ,you may need to check rubber cam seals if not done right they can rip and drip! Yes you need to pull motor to replace! Hope that isnt' the case.
