Just looks like normal condensation, if your coolant is not going down don't worry.
well this was after a 40 mile trip (M6) back from JED, the engine was warm\hot...but okay will keep an eye on it.. i need to add a overflow coolant bottle soon anyway.
As always..thank you :)

Manny, this is what i use on the over tight or thread locked one's, 99% success rate, you need some vice grips lower down the stick so as not to damage the box though.

Yes..i will re-attempt the removal...as i don't really want to cut through it

I was just thinking the same, SD1 LT77 a rubber strap wrench should unscrew it. Paul believe when i say we have tried... my mate whom is a builder and much stronger ...failed to remove it, i think there is evidence of glue..so may see if thinners\vinegar mat help...plan B is to cut and shut. I foun...

I know Manny has the V8, but the standard TR7 used the same 1850 slant engine then upped it to 2l so not unprobable that the OD box was also fitted. :lol:
Just wondered if the gearknob was fastened to the lever in the same way?.
which i read is also SAAB related..?

Well if John Eales and crew have done the build it will have been done very well no doubt, hopefully it's just a blocked or collapsed follower and you haven't over revved it and knocked a bit of cam lobe off, finger's crossed for you.

Sounds like a knackered follower Manny, i wouldn't run it until you pull the rocker cover, did your engine guy shim the rocker shaft mounts ? Paul Thanks Paul, the engine was built by JE Developments, and was dynoed, it started misbehaving after i went WOT in third, would over revving cause this ? ...
