Leaking oil from cam chain adjuster

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Did 2 laps at my local track when i noticed engine oil on my boot. The bolt had dissapeared from the cam chain adjuster. It was a fairly muddy day would it be possible that i may have sucked any crap into my engine in the proces??

Should i flush it out with gas??

Cheers in advance

Losing that bolt can't be good... that's like right into the crank, etc. If you're lucky, the pressure coming out might have pushed the mud out. How much oil did you lose?

Where'd it go (the bolt)?

My dad left that bolt out once, fortunately I noticed it, what a dumbass my dad is sometimes...

Lost 250ml of oil. Id say the bolt must be on the track although the flange was in some mud on the engine case.
