taming the final beast

Postby DrewG60 on Apr Tue 20, 2010 6:27 pm

THE OIL LEAK...everything is now fixed except for oil leak. its very small as I am not losing a noticeable amount of oil however *from a novice's perspective* it appears to be dripping on the header which makes for a nice plume of smoke. ideas? you guys have been great by the way, thanks for all the help!

Valve cover gasket. You have the metal or plastic cover?

Find out where it is dripping from and fix it. Clean the whole area with de-greaser.
