Hey guys....ive had my 74 alfa just sitting for the last 5 to 6 months.....i developed an oil leak coming from the rear main seal....the oil was real thin and smelled of gas and it also was unusual that the oil level was so high that it was coming out of the rear main seal.....so i drained the oil today and way more then 6 quarts came out and it was at least a 50/50 mixture of oil and fuel......how can that happen? Any ideas?

On carb models there is a mechanical fuel pump near the dizzy. The rubber membrane can fail resulting in fuel being pumped to the carbs and into the crank-case.

Does the injection system share this feature? If so I would check the membrane.

The fix requires a new fuel pump (ask me how I know).
