Hello everyone,
Does anyone knows if there are washers at the E88 / 2 pipe fittings?
Thank you for your answer.
Michel.

I have an oil leak there and I dismounted and I understood. There is obviously no washer at this connection there but there is none between rocker spindle E28/1 and the cylinder head and that's where the oil oozes. I added a fiber washer and no more leakage.
Do not worry, this is not sacrilege to God HRD, isn't?
Michel.

OK
It took a while before the pin dropped. This is a Series A head (rocker spindle mention triggered that)

If I recall I used some sealant under the head of the rocker spindle. It may be that your spindle is hitting bottom on the far end before making a sealing contact with the head at the outer end.

As you have found, the oil line is a tapered seat fitting.
