Re: Oil leak - Cylinder Base

Bruce Crain

I am sorry I did not explain myself good enough!  None of the thread or locker is to go under the cylinder base bolts or cylinder skirt for the through bolt Jim is talking about!  It is to go inside the hole that the through bolt goes through .  Perhaps an inch or so inside the hole in the case halves!

Hey Bruce,

I also have an oil leak I’ve been putting off fixing on #2 and #3 cylinders. I think it’s the thru bolts leaking.
I’ve heard that the leak can be stopped by pulling the cylinder away, pushing the thru bolt out a little, wrapping silk thread around the bolt shaft, pushing back in place  and reinstalling the cylinder.

Please let me know what you found and how you repaired it.
