If you still have your old shocks, put them back on. If the level is restored, then it is the Spax shocks causing it so compare the two side by side and look for differences. If it doesn't restore the level, then it is not the Spax shocks and you need to look elsewhere...

BL stated minimum head thickness was 4.427" (112.45mm) for the 1850/TR7, same as the Triumph Stag.

Measured as shown in pic.

Obviously Laurent, you will have to repair/replace the water pump.

Ian.
Do you mean that the gas leak would come from the water pump bearing/sealing ?
