Is there a torque figure for tightening down the cam covers?
And have you any tips for ensuring it is oil tight and leak free? (am I searching for some unachievable utopia?)
I am fairly confident that the gasket won’t leak - both head and cam cover surfaces look in good condition. But what about the ends? Nothing seems to hold the gaskets up against the rubber seals, and a leak at the back of the engine will be difficult to see.
