Oil leak at tach?

Post by Bluemax » Sun Aug 30, 2015 11:49

Had oil dripping down from the tach cable behind the instrument panel. Suspected the oil was coming out of the A-75 engine and climbing up the spiral wrapped inner cable so, thought it might be the oil seal at the engine connection and replaced it. After 10 hours or so, dripping again at tach area. Anybody experience this? Thanks

Might use some spray brake cleaner (or other solvent) to clean it up, then fly and dust it with powder and see where its coming from...
