There's a little rubber bung at the top of both ends of the block just below the rocker cover, the back one came out somehow the other day and well I didn't quie empty all the oil but it was very very low glad I noticed the burning oil refinery smell before I fried the turbo...

Hey Tez, how's things? Yeh since i have had the muffler off it has developed quite a rattle in the old exhaust. Instead f trying to fix the old one i just thought, bugger it, why not. After asking around i have ended up with the 2 3/4 inch, i will put a sports muffler on this one (maybe) just to keep the neighbours happy:D It might not sound too great around the streets but shit it sounds good in the forest:D:D
