    Default What have you been doing in the rain this morning?? me - chain cover gasket on my Vec B!!

    Lol.

    As above.. we did the chains last week on my Vec B 2.2 Sri 150, and even though we used a new vx chain cover gasket it still leaked..

    So this morning I stripped it back down, wiped up all the surfaces, wiped the gasket down and also used a small beed of instant gasket along the rubber of the vx gasket.. If that doesnt seal it I dont know what will!!.

    Soaking wet now tho! lol

    Oh and made a balls up... Left the drained (fresh - 1 week old) oil out in the rain, so thats now not usable, and I cant get to vx to get some more as there is no oil in me car!! DOH!

    Fingers crossed that when I do put oil in it it doesnt carry on leaking otherwise I am going to Cry!

    Bad timing weatherwise! lol. It was sunny earlier in the week, so I cleaned the throttle body (that Wynns carb cleaner is freaking amazing - blasted all the crap off without even needing to touch the butterfly valve). Now that it's raining, I'm far better off sitting in the office looking out over the car park and admiring my Siggy.
