My Rapide is leaking oil between G3 and G4. The bushes are OK. What can I do? A Grosset starter is mounted! Erik

Oder du machts einen gekochten Korken in die kickstarter Bohrung.
Or you put a boiled cork in the kickstarter hole. Ed.
What is the correct gearbox oil level to stop leakage at G3/G4?You can make up a thin tube and push the G 17 bush inward slightly enough to install a thin section "O" ring that is held up against the bush with the spring and spring cup G 26. This may help, but it is most likely from the oil level being a little too high.
So, not leaking at G3/G4 rather oil from primary was flowing down the kick start shaft bore?Three corks in the bore for the left side kickstart.You have to grind the corks a Little bit in Diameter and you have to boil them to make them soft.I used Chianti classico superiore from Fattoria la vialla , Toscana , Italia.
