I have a pretty significant oil leak on my '51 Hornet. It does not leak sitting or at idle, but when I am running down the road the oil is hitting the driveshaft and slinging all over the bottom of the car, so I assume it must be rear main seal. Any thoughts?
I am going to do some more checking, but if that is the case does anyone know of a readily available replacement? Is it a rope replacement or a modern rubber seal?
Finally, if I am tearing into it that far, should i replace main/rod bearings or maybe even do a full rebuild?
Any thoughts and/or parts leads are greatly appreciated.
