30 minutes eh??? So in my time that is about 8 hours!!! *LOL*

Like I said, I will wait for the weather to warm up than I can maybe get some big pieces of cardboard and do it in the back driveway, that way if some does spill, less chance of dad freaking on me!!!

Something you can do that'* quick easy and relatively clean would be to check the torque on the bolts. They should be 120inch lbs or 10ft lbs. If they are loose, you would have a leak.

Okay being mechanically stupid here, how do you check the torque on the bolts?

There is a tool called a torque wrench. You'd look for one that fits the correct needs of having the 10ft lbs or 120inch lbs mark and fits the sockets you have (10mm socket in this case).

This is a settable item and will either click, stop moving or indicate it has reached the proper torque when turning it by some means (usually specified in the instructions for it.).

Then this allows you to check the torque on the bolts by using your new tool

I will have to ask dad if he has one or not, if not try and borrow one. Last resort, another trip to Canadian Tire!

As long as it is automatic, could be something I could handle!
