Not currently. It's an idea I've toyed with a lot, but it's still an automatic which I'm not a fan of. After I'm done restoring it, depending on how much it's cost me at that point I may look into...

Any chance you can get a video of the water leak and post it on YouTube for us? I might be able to help diagnose if you did. Sorry it wasn't as simple as the cowl.

That is the drain plug that you will find underneath the hood. If you'd like, I could probably make a very quick video on how to get to that for you.
