These sensors usually have an O ring, although the parts illustration doesn't show it, or the sensor. Remove it and have a check, replace the O ring if it's there. Let us know what you find.

Thanks. S&S says it’s not theirs, it’s a Morgan part. They said it’s an o ring and I should be able to replace it at a FLAPS.

I took mine out and siliconed it. It still leaks if the car sits for a few weeks. If I go out and look in the Pod it is probably leaking now. It seems to totally go away if I regularly drive the car

That will be because the oil in the tank drains down into the sump over a long period of time. When you use it regularly it doesn't have time to do this and the sump oil level never reaches the sensor.

Mine leaked on both sides, now it only leaks on the oil filter side.

Both sides? Huh? Isn’t there only one such sensor?
