Silicone Sealant

Les Henson

Recommended Posts

In the sump of a Transit that now needs a replacement engine because the rocker cover gasket was leaking.

Rocker gasket is a couple of quid and is available from most parts places.

Silicone sealer is a couple of quid and available from most parts places.

Engine from a scrapyard/Labour charge - £400

Go figure.

[thinks] Strange bunch of folk that inhabit this forum - we need a 'care in the community' forum[/thinks] :blink:

Crank is totally shot. I would say that oil flow was restricted enough to cause this. Only a 2-litre Pinto lump, but the rest of the motor is very good condition. The owner isn't happy, but then he did it.
