thanks Dan

67000 on the clock
been smoking a while but as it's been winter it merged with the condensation
no visible oil leaks and no water leaks - the head gasket was replaced at about 40000 miles (a common problem due to a very small radiator)
When the oil was low it blew a lot of smoke but when it's topped i hardly notice it
no idea about PSI
I think the engine cycles as there is a lot of whirring after the engine is turned off - i always thought it was the air con

It could just be a decayed seal somewhere but there are no obvious leaks - my garage guy is good but if it's a pricey part it's a pricey part Sad

I used to run a 71 Cortina which had been modded so the the propshaft went regularly - the garage guy would only charge a fiver, a real diamond

anyway best not hi-jack Joe's thread too much Wink
