    Just checked on the Inter-web and it was Prost (Renault) first, Nelson Piquet (Brabham) 2nd and Alan Jones (Williams) 3rd... Ah.. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

    I would remove the engine, drain the gearbox oil which is easy and then undo the bell housing bolts. Remove the tank and do to it whatever you want. In the mean time buy a sheet gasket material from...
