  1. yes I put the cam cover back on, cleaned the gasket and head where the gasket meets and torqued down to 84" pounds. when the cover was off I felt around the back of the head and it was dry. unless it is a slow drip above the #6 header pipe in the rear corner that is all I can think of. it is hard to see as my oil never turns black I all ways try to keep the oil pretty clean. so later this week when the weather clears up I'll take it for a run and see what happens . if it is still leaking I order a new cam cover gasket and change it. that would be blessing if that was it but for some reason I h
  2. now that I was thinking about it I might leave the torque setting alone. the torque wrench click at 54 lbs so it must be tighter than that . I am going to drive it again and check to see where it is leaking from with a fresh gunk job and maybe see where it is staring from. I wonder if it could be a rear main seal maybe throwing the oil back up there , the oil pan looks good also. I would think if it were the rear main seal it would throw it back on the tranny!
  3. good luck with your retirement it is the best thing I ever did !! my joints feel better since I retired but is still the my age but better. I did just check the head bolts and at 54 lbs nothing moved ! I am afraid to maybe go to 60 lbs what do you think ?
  4. yes I will be 65 in august, and when I was working I all ways out work the kids. when a job had to be done right away the boss all ways put the older guy on it . it seemed most of the kids in my job had 1 speed!!! I spent almost 40 years in the line work field climbing in and out of bucket trucks and trenches and now I am paying for it. some days are good and others take a little time to get moving .but life goes on and I am not going to stop, I work through it . the good news is I can still get my leg over the harley !!!!!!!!!
  5. hey cliff, when you give him a few tall boys put some pop corn in it, just might make his night ! yes zed head the mind all ways thinks young, but some mornings make me think a little different .
  6. well racer x, I am 64 years young or old sometimes in the morning ps thanks for the help with the download !! I did get that far but it would not open so as you suggest I click the save to desk top and that was it big thanks
  7. no worries , I getting old I thought I was having a moment!!
  8. yes I did not think it was a L6 motor . I have the torque sequence from the manuals, and yes it is a good idea to set my torque wrench at 54 lbs to see if I have a loose bolt . if I do not find any loose bolts should I increase to 60 lbs? I really do not want to change the head gasket if I don't have to ! 60 lbs might be looking for trouble but I already have a oil leak right? I am not low on anti freeze , no oil in the antifreeze and no water in the oil . the motor runs l perfect, and I do remember back in the 80s when I blew a head gasket in the 260 motor what that was like.
  9. hey siteunseen thanks for the info, but I am not computer smart like the kids are so I could not fine the fsm on this site for the 1977 n47 cylinder head . so I looked in my haynes and chilton manuals and there are 14 bolts . the 1st setting is 30 ft lbs and the second is 44 ft lbs and the 3rd is 54-61 ft lbs . you are showing 10 bolts with a max torque of 49 ft lbs? I also would like to thank ever body for the help !!
  10. no ,I just saw that also in the photo after you said that and I wiped it down with Windex and it is gone I almost crap in my pants going to the garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. I was afraid of that, does anybody know what the torque pattern is and the torque specs for n47 cylinder head? thanks
  12. I will check again on the valve cover but it looked dry , I will get a picture posted also thanks
  13. no it is oil that is running down the side of the motor at the # 6 cylinder no a lot . when I wipe my finger under the header it is wet with oil . I sprayed carb cleaner all around the intake manifold with no change in rpms either . the cylinder head is not leaking as far as I can see and the motor runs and idles perfect . I drove it yesterday and at a stop light I thought I had auto start stop it was so smooth . could it be the bottom of the intake ? maybe bolts? I did use all the old hardware back in 1997, and at that time I had no idea that I was supposed to use all new hardware I guess f
  14. I now have a oil leak from the # 6 cylinder header bolt dripping down by the bell housing , it looks like the second bolt in on a n47 head is this just a bad gasket ? all spark plugs look great , when I assembled the motor 25 years ago I used the old hardware I did not know at the time about changing out the hardware . so I now see msa auto sells the new hardware kit and gasket . I sprayed carb cleaner around the intake and have no rise in rpms . is it just a bad gasket and old hardware ? thanks for the help
