set the new brakes on fire on the way home from getting the crank yesterday maybe putting wd40 in the dried up copper slip was a bad idea it went all over the hot disc and smoked for 15mins lol
 
Years back I mixed 3 in 1 into some old copper slip which I keep in an old vaseline jar. It's stayed liquid ever since and It's kept in the shed out in the cold, so not sure if that's helped (the oil that is).

have been losing some water on this car for a while now so decided to fix the issue then make some mods to the engine

the gasket had failed to seal from the water to crankcase so left me with water in the oil
