Cam Cover
« on: September 18, 2007, 12:13:28 PM »
Todays Hint:

The square cam cover with the decompression release bracket is aluminum:

Don't over-tighten it! 

We'll see how well JB Weld and RTV seal it up while I await the replacement.... ;)

Well the new cam cover is on the way. My temporary fix is oil tight !  ;D

I'll make sure not to use excessive force on the new one!

....There's nothing like getting off the bike after good run and bending over to see if you've fixed the oil leak; only to find nice dry engine fins and crankcase, and drip-free drain plugs!

Sweet!

Better check the oil level.  There's probably none left!
