I have had a good long chat with @SpeedyGee about this one and although I am keen on keeping the car, just thought I'll hear what others have to say. As many of you know there is a definite oil leak under my car, 99% sure its from the gearbox as engine is bone dry and oil levels haven't dropped. Previous owner did recondition the gearbox in 2013 at a cost of £700 but the car had done about 50,000 miles until I bought it in August. There has always been a faint whine in the gearbox which goes away when I press the clutch pedal hence pointing to the fact that it is input shaft bearing for sure! its not noticeable unless you are actually trying to hear it on a very quite street in the middle of the night Question: Has anyone got a clue how much it will cost me to get the bearings replaced? or should I not do it at all and look to part ways with the car in next few months before it gets worse? Obviously I love the Katto and I feel it has plenty of life left but I run a very tight budget so it doesn't make sense to me to spend £500 on a car that is worth £800.. but on the other hand I don't want to get into the hassle of buying another sub £1000 car as it will present its own set of issues no doubt.
