This runs and blows well, BUT  is blowing out engine oil. I suspect a crankshaft seal ?? Shall I throw it down the tip or can it be repaired without a load of aggravation. many thanks Colin

Just depends. If the seal has gone due to a bad bearing its possibly not worth doing but if just the seal, give it a go. If you are not paying labour charges there's little to loose.

As mentioned..Junk it. I'll bet the screws retaining the 2 parts of the Crankcase have loosened. There is only 3 of them (Phillips head). Cr--p design

I thought about stripping one down and fitting more and proper bolts and dowels, but only thought about it for 1/2 a second !.

I'm with C101. Pull it apart to check it out and fix it if easy enough. Nothing to loose if you are junking it anyway. Plus those small pistons and rods make a nice little key chain.

Friend of mine builds 2 stroke racing kart motors. He'll get his hands on something like this when he's bored and hot rod it and then see how long it will run before BOOM! :)
