Replacement Cylinder Head


Recommended Posts

Your oil leak may be stripped threads in the large cylinder bolt holes.  They will torque down, but loosen and then oil leaks out under compression.  BTDT

 

Next time you pull the cam, check the torque on the head bolts with a cold motor.  If some are not spec., they need repair or replace the cylinder.  

 

NEVER overtorque them.

Its ok. I took the head off again yesterday and they were all still tight. It was leaking from around one of the bolts. I could see it bubbling there .The old gasket doesn't seat properly and should seal with tight bolts.
