    F**k history.
    You deserve a break today, with all your hard work.

    G'day B-O-B,

    Still cannot find that small engine oil leak on Puff The Tragic Wagon.

    What I do now is ride the sucker like I stole it and when I get back to the garage just stick that old towel under the sucker and wipe it down before the next ride.

    Sun will still come up tomorrow and life moves on.

    Grasshopper, remember you must take the rock from my hand.

    The rear main seal on my 2002 Miata leaks a little bit in the first month or two of the Spring after taking it out of storage, then its good to go for the rest of the season.
    I just put a piece of cardboard under it.

    I discovered that this leak is quite common.
    I could pull the tranny, and of course do a clutch job while its out, but thats a good deal of money and time.

    I checked the Miata forums, and a few guys just secure a Kotex Pad down there...:)

    The more I read about these old 4 stroke Yamis I think the engineers were shitfaced on saki when they came up with some of this stuff.

    I’d have paid cash money to have seen that - you’ve made me do that a few times DE!
