Glen.Russ, is the bottom side of the oil tank wet with oil?
I ask that because I chased what I thought was a multitude of engine leaks only to find that the problem was one big leak up top.
The eyes see oil on a fin and the brain says it must be coming from around here somewhere.
Good point Peter. I'll check them before pulling them.All good stuff, but Russ, if you have newly painted Shadow heads, check that they are still torqued-down to 32 ft-lbs before removing them. A friend had the same compression-leak problem after a few miles of use and when he came to remove the cylinder-head-brackets the head-nuts below were loose! The thick new paint had "given-way"!
