I find that hard to understand, I find all the banjo seals, oil drain and level plug seals, and also the inspection cap seals excellent, none of those areas weep oil once fitted, and you can use them time and time again, what do you dislike about them, the appearance?The Videan seals for the pushrod tube uppers work really well. I did not have good luck with the rest of the seals in those kits, all of the other areas are back to stock stuff now.
I've had two of the inspection cap seals break at the Aluminium ring, both at very inopportune times, hundreds of miles from home. One at the top of the engine let go. This requires dropping engine to replace. That one let go about 1500 miles from home, lots of oil everywhere. I opted to run for home spewing oil all the way. In hindsight, I probably should have bitten the bullet and done the work roadside.I find that hard to understand, I find all the banjo seals, oil drain and level plug seals, and also the inspection cap seals excellent, none of those areas weep oil once fitted, and you can use them time and time again, what do you dislike about them, the appearance?
For any seal to work THREE things are essentialWell I have now given the 19mm X 3mm and 2.5mm o ring bottom push rod tube solution a good blast and there is some weeping on the inlet tube but no worse than the standard seal. Never mind I certainly am not going to take the head off again . What is it they say on the girls advert?
