I am rather concerned that something went horribly wrong with the rear main seal (Terry’s Jag conversion with machined crankshaft per instructions?) on my fully rebuilt XK engine.
While fitting the engine + transmission back in the car (XJ6C), we had to lean the full lump quite steeply backwards as usual. Doing so, engine oil started dripping from the bell housing area, about a quart / litre came out.
Is there any scenario under which such a leak is normal? Could the leak come from anywhere else than the rear seal??
I am rather distraught at the prospect of taking everything apart again and checking the work done on the crankshaft…
