weep hole!!!

just got a new piston rings and valves and ported the head. went and put it all back together and used new seals the whole deal. the oring under the cams is brand new and so is the one on the top but it is dripping oil out of the weep hole like crazy why? please help!

If you are talking about the hole on the side of the cylinder head, it´s not a weep hole.

The hole is there to drain water from the spark plug.

If oil comes out here, the o-rings or cam cover gasket is pinched. Or you have a crack in the head, causing oil to go right through the material.

The weep hole is on the underside of the waterpump. If it leaks oil or water through this hole, you need to replace the waterpump seals.

yes it is the hole in the side of the head sorry. and would this cause the spark plug to be a bit oily?

Sorry, I was mistaken. The cam cover gasket is changed, and has nothing to do with it. The upper o-ring does what the old gasket did.

There is only the orings that will cause a leak into the spark plug well.

The o-rings are different sizes, the lower one is 23.5x2.0 mm.

The upper one is 24.7x2.4 mm.

Don´t mix them up.

on the kawis you need to replace both o-rings,they flatten out and leak as yuo have described.and as mentioned earliar,dont get them mixed up.
