oil leaking EVERYWHERE, help!!!!!!!!
« on: April 25, 2012, 08:11:14 PM »
 :imnew: Just purchased a '68 Kombi, ready to start repairs but noticed unsettlingly large puddles of oil beneath the thing on the right side. There appears to be at least 5 drip sites. Any ideas what the hell is going on?  :eek:

Could be valve cover seals?

Most likely valve cover gasket, very easy to replace, could be a damaged valve cover causing it also, tis the case with mine but again simple and cheap to fix.  But look closely as if the oil is leaking from the heads and not from the far most side of the engine then you may have a stripped out block which is not good at all so hopefully not the case.
