Oil Leak.... - December 11, 2009, 03:47 PM

Ok guys so Im pretty sure


1) I found my rattle/tick thank goodness its my exhaust was wondering any advice there? Here is a pic!




now for the oil leak it looks more like a pressure leak, only under pressure Im assuming. Im about to clean it off for a better look but here is what I have so far any ideas what is causing the leak?

It kind of looks like the black thing may be leaking whatever that is...

So any advice more pics clean or dirty let me know!!

For the exhaust, maybe get a clamp of some sort for it, it seems like its just rattling back and forth, so I think a heavy duty clamp will keep it steady

For the leak, my guess would be a gasket, which one? Well you'd have to clean up the engine (around where its leaking) with some degreaser, and then run the engine (not sure how long it will take) and see where it begins to leak from, at least this is what I would do

Which one?
1= Oil pressure sending unit leaking. May be able to tighten it, but probably be best to remove it clean it and reinstall it per FSM (leak locker? RTV? O- ring?)
2= Case cover: stator or clutch. No gasket usually under here. Tightening will most likely get no results. Best to remove it and clean both surfaces of all "RTV". Apply new sealant (Hondabond/ Kawibond/ etc) to engine side and reinstall cover. Torque to spec. That is probably a magnesium cover, so don't get all He-Man like. Tighten in a criss-cross pattern and don't go to full torque in one shot.
3= Snot or antifreeze.
Hope it helps.

evil thank you soooooooooooo much!!!!

To bad you guys dont use the rep system!

Ok Ill check that out ok I know im very newbish but when taking off the case cover.

I obviously drain the oil first but once I do that take the case cover off
1) Is there going to be any left over oil in there? (we get fined if we leave a oil spot....)
2) how tight do I get it? Is there a set amount of torque on it? If so Ill have to go buy a torque wrench!!

Yeah, drain her first. There may be some oil left, so I'd use some cardboard under. Not much, just drips. Razor blade the surfaces, for the love of God don't sand it!
There is always a torque value. My guess is around 9 ft-lbs. About the same as an oil drain plug: good-n-snug. You don't REALLY need a torque wrench. I just preffer them.
Look around the seam and you should find little slots to put a big flat screwdriver in to GENTLY pry the cover off. It will be tough, but be patient.

+1

Then use that cash as a down payment on a Harley, they generally don't have these kind of issues.
