Seconds from disaster!

One of the fittings on the oil cooler sandwich plate had loosened itself. It held up when I pulled out of the garage, and since it was the first drive for the season I headed for the closest service station while keeping an eye on the oil pressure gauge. I still had good oil pressure when I arrived, but I made sure to look under the car for leaks. And boy, did I find one!

A service station no longer has any tools, those days are long gone, so I had to call the Mrs for a tow home. Fairly eventless, only snapped the tow rope twice... >:->

And BTW: I ordered the full disc brake conversion kit from HiSpec today, looking forward to getting some real brakes on it!
