It’s an o ring on the crank position sensor. It’s not an S&S part but a Morgan one. Dealer has submitted a warrant claim.

I’m curious. I sent the pictures in an email to S&S and copied Morgan, asking for an explanation. I agree it’s not a “problem” but I’m curious. I’ll let ya’ll know what they say.

See if you can find out the size. Probably a 10 cent part we can source locally

Been running her once a week lately so the leaking stopped.

Just heard from S&S. It’s done intentionally to sus in splitting the case. Everybody should have it.
