Thanks for your note. Sale includes a new oil pump cable as well as new throttle and clutch cables. Sealing the oil pump case stopped the inherent leakage but injection oil then accumulated in the pump case and makes its way up the cable to splooge over the engine. The band aid is unsightly, perhaps someone has an alternative suggestion. When inquired, no one had a better 'fix'. Perhaps the expert who purchases the Silk can repair in a manner that preserves the original nature of the cable.
Thank you. Excellent suggestion. The O-rings inside the pump may not have been replaced. Not thinking there might be internal pump parts that would cause it to leak, as this type of pump is not all that similar to other injection pumps. One reason why this Silk needs a knowledgable owner/restorer.
Is there a price at which you or another individual might be interested? if not now, then perhaps in the near future. Or maybe you know someone who would be interested and pay you to restore it, resulting in a win for all concerned.
