    Default Little Rattly when cold - whats this leak?

    Hi, when i start my Veccy 2.2 sri, pre face. when its cold, it sounds a bit like a diesel. its not a horrible noise, not a metal type noise, but more like a tappet type noise, only until warm.

    opened the bonnet to have a look today see if i could hear where from, seems to be arond the tappet area, but i also saw this leak of something, can anyone tell me if this is a common leak/problem or if anyone knows where its coming from?, cheers

    Not too sure mate.

    Could be like common problem on Vec B's, exhaust manifold gasket gone. Taps when cold but when warm it doesn't because the metal has been heated and expands to fill the gap.

    Just a possibility
