I have some minor seepage of oil coming through some bolts. I have tried tightening but it has not stopped. Is there something I can use to seal the bolt threads?

Hi Jim,

What bolts and where are they? We need more info.

A little blue hylomar on the threads is usually enough to keep oil from seeping through bolts such as those on the flywheel.  If you are referring to the cam-cover bolts, you'll need to install the 'seelock' washers available in the club store.

Thanks for the advice.

The seepage seems to be coming from the top bolts on the auxiliary housing. Will the hylomar work for this application and if so is there any special preparation necessary before applying?

Thanks again

Jim
