Hope all of you are doing well?
I hope you guys might be able to help?
My 155 is finally running after a lot of trouble, swearing and a kick or two.
After driving around for a couple of days and km's, I came across a new oil stain in the driveway. After more investigating it looks like the oil is leaking from the tappet cover, right above the camshafts going through the cylinder head.
I have thought about only replacing the seal, but the tappet cover has been welded a couple of times and the one corner has been stuck back up with Pratley.
I have tried all the local scrap yards but they don't want to remove a cover from a complete engine assembly.
Now the other thing is? Is there a different model say a 147 or 156 I can look at that will fit on my 155 engine?
I have seen a couple of 156 and 147 engines being stripped for parts in the junk mail, but hopefully you guys could give me some advise.
Sorry for the long thread.
