Re: Confirm/Identify source of front engine 0il leak
That was a common leak in the early LT's. Seems the machining of the covers did not always get the surface flat.
I used Permatex Ultra Black. No need to let it set long before running engine.
Pulling the cover is not a trivial task, as the radiators have to be loosened and moved forward, and the wires to the temp and oil pressure sensors removed from the sensors and threaded through the cover opening. I found it easier to remove the wire connections in the electrical box, as these connections are smaller then the ones on the sensors.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
