    Richard - thanks for the calcs, much appreciated.

    Jon - the tube is narrower than the bearing so I can’t get a straight shot at it. Dremel, hmmmm...That might be a solution!

    Hi Ian,
    Engine crane out the front would be easiest and also allow you to replace the RMS if that turns out to be the leak. If no crane then body off time!
