Right, just a quick question.

I have a mildly tweaked 1.2s motor and gearbox to go in my Kadett, but while its out I would like to cure some of the oil leaks that it had in its previous home :roll:

What are the Gaskets and seals you would replace while its on the bench if you had the chance ?

Are there any that always seem to leak ?

Inside of the bellhousing was pretty filthy but not sure if that was from other leaks higher up running down and getting blown into the Bell housing as they dripped down ?

any advice as always appreciated

I'd do the sump gasket, timing chain cover gasket, rocker cover gasket.

Front and rear crank seals- esp if bellhousing was filthy.... not sure how much of a pain the rear one is :?

when i changed the engine on my kadett, i completely stripped it, painted the block and changed ever gasket on the rebuild except the oil pump one,

and the thing still hasn't leaked yet.
