head gasket )more)
G'day thrillseekers. I recently replaced the head gasket, and basicaly it was a successful operation, however I now have an oil leak which seems to be coming from the area of the head that encloses the timong chain. I know it isn't the timing chain adjuster, as I recently replaced to O-ring, and tensioned it correctly.
Can anyone confirm the possibility of oil leaking from that particular area, and maybe suggest a fix? I am thinking of silastic (on the outside) but am unsure if it will work. Of course i don't want to remove the head to fix it if I can get away with it!
In passing, recently did the shox too. A relatively easy job, but make sure that you line up the top spring retainer correctly, otherwise you have to re-compress the spring to get it right .Trust me, I know! It's also easier to take off the complete stub axle, and only adds an extra 10 mins to the job.
