When I got my M-10, it required a lot of work. The C-90 ran okay but had oil leaks around the starter, the generator, the mags, the front prop seal, and oil temp fitting. I replaced the starter with a lightweight Skytech Starter with new gasket. I replaced the generator with a new 40 amp alternator with new gasket. We replaced the front prop seal. I installed overhauled Kelly Aerospace mags with new gaskets. I installed a spin on oil filter.
The one leak I could never stop was around the oil temp sending unit. It doesn't leak much, just enough to leave a small streak on the right side of the airplane. We have replaced gaskets but that doesn't seem to work. I decided to change the way the unit works. I am installing a Mitchell oil temp gauge with an electronic sending unit. It is a sealed unit and with a new gasket should end the issue. I'll let you know how it works.
