    Well there is no oil in the head at all, so maybe it’s just old nasty coolant? Dale Cooper and maybe Lance Walker in the US should have a new gasket. Not sure about the UK.  Also try to re-torque the head and see if it helps. I’ve also used a good stop leak added to the coolant to slow the leak, hopefully it’s not going into the cylinders.

    I think the Railton Owners Club have them but you will have to become a member to participate in their spares scheme. It might be worthwhile as, like me, you're in the UK.
