OIL LEAK

Postby rrey » 12 Nov 2020 09:25

Hello again. I´ve noticed an oil leak through this hole right above the head gasket. Front cylinder. Anybody knows what is this hole for and why is oil coming out of it?.

Thanks

Don't know what the hole is for, but is the cam box gasket OK? Oil, as any liquid, is a weird thing. It may be leaking from above, pooling in the hole then flowing out.

Thanks Mike.

I assume this hole comes from inside the spark plug hole. A kind of breather or water drain, simply not sure. Yes, it seems like the valve cover gasket must be leaking inside this hole...

Yes, there is a drain hole I believe.

Good luck getting the lid off amongst the scaffolding...
