Bad things:
Oil leak NO soft top, have one, needs modifying
NO heater. Break "power booster" needs replacing

Bad oil leak.

The oil leak is at the back of the engine, between the block and the "bell housing" plate. I suspect that one of the replaced

(during rebuild) oil way plug has come loose.

Engine out is made very easy as the modified hood can be removed by two bolts, and electrical connector, then moved away.

The break servo (power booster) needs to be replaced, the breaks are now back to normal, but with discs on the front.

Hydraulics will require bleeding/repair when the new power booster is installed.
