yo, you PM'd me a few days ago. If you remove a few old messages in your inbox I'll be able to message you back. For now I'll post my reply here though. (Only way I could get this message to you

Hey,

well, I the seal got removed but I don't think you'll go for the same solution as I went for. I left that seal after my attempt to remove the pipe and accepted that I had an unidentified leak. Spoke to my garage about it and they seemed a bit confused as to why I thought it was that particular seal.
Anyway, my waterpump broke and caused me a top end rebuild. So as the garage were going to remove most of the top end of the engine I realised they'd have great access to that seal so just gave them the final seal and asked if they could replace it. Engine has been dry ever since...

Sorry not much help for you but you never know, you might want a new top end soon

cheers
Andy

Thanks Andy,
As you say probably not my first choice for a fix.
I thought I might be able to do something funky with the old filter:-
If I were to cut the old recently removed filter just below the screw thread, peen over any nasty edges, might even give it lobes for griping. Then wind it on the threaded tube, I'd have a nut that I could tighten the real nut to to make them solid and then hey presto unwind the tube with the nice large easy to grip cut of "filter nut".
That's the plan anyway, definitely need to avoid top end rebuild, the wallet won't take it!
Good of you to come back to me.
Cheers,
Toby
