Oil in Plug Chamber



  • I noticed the other day that there was some oil on the front rocker cover. Looking further I pulled the HT lead nearest the filler cap out and it was covered in oil going down to the plug.
    Must have spilt some oil when I topped up I thought so cleaned it all out. Just had a look today to make sure all OK and there is more oil back in the plug chamber.
    I am assuming this is the rocker cover gasket.
    Can anyone confirm, please.



  • yes Rod, it will be cam cover gasket mate….



  • Not too big a job then?

  • Hi Neil
    Pm'd you earlier and wondered if you have got it.
    Not like you to be offline. :)



  • Hey this is my 1st post so let me know if i mess up!

    i have had this same problem whilst sorting out one that im doing at the moment. i new it had a little leak around the rocker cover @cyl. #2. whilst trying to ge it all in bits for the current job, i found that pretty much all the bolts holding everything down were loose. make sure you give them a decent nip up but dont screw the ally casting up. hope you have a torque wrench! :wink:



  • Thanks for the 1st post fella but the problem was solved, required a new cam cover gasket which i replaced for rod at my house some time ago now, lol should have updated this post ….

    Rainy....
