Cam cover sealing

Recommended Posts

Once again I have had to sort out a leaking exhaust cam cover and I have come up with a couple of ideas to help.

To make things easier I took the wheels off and with the car on axle stands put a trolley jack under the sump and took off the engine mounts and so could move the engine slightly toward the off side so I could get at the cover easier.

I made up some lengths of m6 allthread slightly longer than the cover bolts, by screwing them into the holes in the cam carriers, the gasket can be coated in sealant and slid down the allthread into position, the allthread an be unscrewed and replaced with the bolts. 

I found that the top row of studs is all you need to keep everything in place.

Peter,

Brill idea, using the studding, I'll use that next time I do mine.

Regards to all, John
