Well after fitting the so called wonder tubes that Syngear sold me, the ones that don't leak but are  ;D ;D ;D I have now been sent a set of replacement seals and springs I have to change.
Question is as they are spring loaded and i don't need to remove the heads and not started it for a week, will i still need to drain the oil from the engine?
I'm think no but thought i'd ask and see what the general opinion is.

Just seen this. I used diesel oil 10/40 fully synthetic mixed with some sunflower oil, still runs and smells nice too  ;-)up
