A friend has a 1966 Morgan Plus 4 with the one shot oil system for the front suspension. And lo and behold it’s leaking, quite badly. I’ve had a look online for how it all goes together and it appears to me there isn’t much in the way of oil seals in the kingpin assembly. There is a dust cover, some thrust plates and some bronze bushings and that appears about it. So I’m guessing an oil misting is about as oil tight as you may get? Anyone able to enlighten me any further?
We are looking to strip the front suspension down and to repair and renew once we find out what we’ve got.
