Is it coming out of the oil pressure switch?
. Honestly no idea, or more to the point; don’t know where that is lol

That’s the thing above the coolant flange, with the rubber cover and wire coming from it. Pull back the cover you’ll see and electrical connection. The switch has a nut shaped base. It’s basically a bolt with a sensor in it.

Have you established it's a coolant or oil leak yet?
The oil pressure switch is to the left of the circle you've drawn with the wire attached.
Sorry didn't see Eddypeck reply.

Having another look at it today.

Coolant flange fitted no more leaks.

Engine turns over, no smoke (yet) but battery needs a good charge, as not firing the engine.

I’ll try and get a picture today, as the fuel filter doesn’t look like it’s filling!

So, battery will be charged today fully, then we can see what’s what.

Thanks to Mk2 Spares for getting the parts here so quickly.

That's odd Pierburg carbs are usually auto choke.
Though that might have just been the two Drivers I had.
