Twin Spark Cam Cover Leaking
Hi all, Please bare with me on this I'm very new to tinkering with engines although finding it very satisfying and interesting.
I've recently bought back my 145qv ( CF2 engine Plastic Top ) and set out tidying the engine bay. I noticed the front of the engine was very covered in oil. I delved a bit deeper and removed the cam cover to investigate, The existing rubber gasket is attached to the block ( is that right ?) with some black sealant and looks to be very well attached, the top of the gasket is very damp with oil and suspect the oil is coming over the gasket and out. I've ordered a new gasket and was thinking of sealing the gasket into the top plastic cover in its pre-groved shape and then sealing it back the block ( again is that right ? ) to create a seal top and bottom of the gasket. Is this the correct thing to do ? I can't see an issue until it needs to be removed again.
Any help gratefully appreciated, Simon
