    Posted: 07 Nov 2010 at 9:36pm
Have just bought an MG6 with Drayton Diesel engine.
The engine seems to have back pressure, forcing oil out through the top of the filler. i am guessing the sump is pressurising, so will possibly need new rings and possibly re-bore & piston.
any advice anyone can give? also details of where i can get parts from?
thanks. (based in suffolk)

It probably is what you say but first check the crankcase breather first isnt blocked. I once bought a car dirt cheap that the seller said needed a new engine but it turned out to just need a new breather and oil change, had another four years until somebody ran into it and it got wrote off.
If it isnt orange it isnt a rotavator

Hi, I have a drayton on my MG40. You will find that oil will come out of the top if its been over filled. To Check the level remove the cap, you will see a small tube. The oil should be 3/4 inch below the top of this tube.
Its prob due for an oil change, the correct oil is straight 40 engine oil. Dont use any modern multigrade as this will damage the engine.
 
When the engine warms up you will see oil coming up through the tube
 
You will find that the drayton engine will smoke when running.
 
For spares contact Neil Jarret, hes signed up on here & does stock over size pistons for these engines.
 
Hope this helps
