Whats the trick to get the timing cover sealed properly? :x
Seems to be leaking up around the chain tensioner!
Also one of the bolts into the head from the from the power steering bracket seems to be seeping oil! Does this bolt go thru to oilway? :shock:

the only way to seal it properly is remove it and replace the gasket,,either engine out or cut and weld the square bar that runs in front of the engine.

the leaky bolt is a worry,,the oil gallery is on the other side.

I think there may be an o-ring or something? mine was pissing oil out about 4 years ago and it got fixed by a mechanics. Hasn't leaked since.
