Re: Be still my beating heart
Sounds fairly terminal, even if the external symptoms are minor.
I'd guess that there's been a cam-belt related incident leading to a seizure. The oil leak will be due to the oil seals around the cam pulleys being forced sideways, or something like that.
Good luck in finding a new donkey for the thing... but they're pretty scarce. You may have to look at a rebuild (in which case, also replace the crank bearing shells).
