I haven't changed anything else, and don't know when they are changed in past .
Sometimes i think to chage water motor and auxiliary water reservatoir.
But i see no leaks on water circuit for now...

Now about oil leaks i found one vey small... this could be my problem.
Send attached one pic to show where is...
Is in that hole where a screw is attached...
And now i don't know how to close the hole!
If screw removed, that is used to attach engine cover, and motor is running, i can see a little oil smoke getting out!
Strange thing... i think the old owener used a bigger screw that he can...
To fix i think i nedd to open valve cover and close from inside... so that motor suction does not open again the hole.!

Maybe this is enought to explain my oil leak...
I love the new cooling system terms and will be using them from now on.
