The tiger cub is a nice little bike but they have a reputation for being a weak engine not in performance but reliability and are notorius for oil leaks especially from the pushrod tubes. I know because I had one many years ago when I had hair on my head.
I found the BSA C15 to be a stronger engine and although they do leak oil sometimes not as bad as the tiger cub.
I can only suggest you try the  Tiger Cub club
