I've lifted the cam cover on my Girlie for the first time (by me) as it's done 30,000 miles and a check is most likely overdue.

Does the rubber seal for the cam cover, if in good condition, seal properly? I ask, as clearly the last person in there has used copious quantities of clear silicone (RTV), which I personally LOATHE. Where the stuff squeezes out of joints inside, it breaks off, blocking oilways and AAARGH! :mad: I'm sure the factory don't use silicone, do they?

What's the preferred method of sealing it when I replace the cover?

Thanks Ian, that's what I did after finding my reading glasses and consulting the Haynes book of fibs. But I had to go and buy some silicone - I don't usually keep it the cupboard.

All valve clearances within spec. Which is good. ;-)

I've not tried Wellseal yet. I'm a confirmed user of Hylomar at the mo'.
