Did some investigation today about leaking cam covers.

I found out that leaking mainly from the exhaust cam is not very strange.
Because the oil return holes are in the top of the cam housing, so a whole lot of oil stays in the cam housing after turning the engine off.

Just above the exhaust down pipes, really hot, that will give every kind of seal really a hard time.

Maybe make a smal drain hole in the cam housing, so after engine stop an electric valve opens and the oil can find its way back in the carter throu the large carterventilation hole?

Or is that a stupid idee ?

On second view I looks like that each compartment is not connected to an other so each compartment must be drained, to complicated as option.
