1965 911 oil leak


Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1965; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): Original 2.0 litre; Total Mileage: 132,xxx;

I have owned my 911 ( #300720 ) since April of 2002. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt about 2 years prior to my purchase. Shortly after buying the car she developed an oil leak that seems to be from the front of the engine. Sometimes the leak does not appear, other times it does. This is bothering me as the oil is dripping onto the heat exchanger on the right side. I am thinking it could be one of the three o-rings on the engine mounted oil cooler?? This would explain the leak occuring at irregular times I believe. Also I had the right side of the car jacked up and oil was dripping at a constant drip off of the right hand side valve cover, lowest point I know but thought I would include that as well. Thank you.David
