Took the rocker cover off and cleaned it up. Squidged some sealant on the base of the nuts to try and stop the damn thing weeping oil.

Noticed one of the end sections of the rocker shaft is fractured a little, right by the headbolt.  :evil:

Also need to tap some new threads into the carb for the carb top studs. I think 2 of them were held in the chemical metal. They have lasted for years but one has finally given up. Will drill and tap and pinch some hex head capscrews from work.  8)

Nice wheels Ash  8)  they have more of a 'motor sport' look without the centres.

Where is your rocker cover leaking mate? Has a nut been done up too tight and squished the sides out a little bit? Fingers crossed for the sealant  :D

Sealant did the trick for me for a along time although recently changed to the small gaskets.

Loving the wheels suit the car, defo need to bring the ride height down at the rear abit.

It was leaking mainly from around my nuts. It's cured now, it's gets a bit grubby around the filler cap but the seal looks like it's seen better days. I know what you mean about overtightening it, the long faces can bow outwards. I did that when i very first had the rocker cover off.

The threads for the carb top were shot, i decided to drill and re-tap them to M-8. I wish the material i use at work was so easy to chew through!






Couldn't find any nice shiny coated capscrews in this size at work.  :(

Note to self - Drilling the job is usually better then drilling your own fingers.



Note to self No2 - Degreaser and open cuts hurts like hell!

Clearly a violation of your powers.

I'm filing a grievance with the site owner right this second.  :!:

Bit of an update.

A few problems need sorting out.

Radiator fan has stopped working.
N/S/R wheel bearing is getting unbearable.
Heater fan is squeaking like mad, horrible first thing in the morning.
Car is starting to drive like a pig now with the cold and misty mornings, need to look into blocking a section of the intercooler off.
Needs a wash!  :?
