    Cam Seals?

    Well i recently changed the Rocker Gasket on my drivers side as it had a leak on it, and after doing that the leak has stopped on the rocker, but there seems to still be a very small on at the back still which drips on the maifold, so the only thing i can think of around there is the cam seal.

    my question is

    do i have to take out the cam to replace this seal, or can i just unbolt the unit on the back that i notice is where it seeps out from?

    thanks in advance

    Tony

    What engine?

    If you mean the block protruding from the left hand rear of the cylinder head, its the tensioner for the cam chain, and it doesnt just come off, however your supposed to apply sealant to the corner of it when you fit a new rocker gasket, and if you didnt thats maybe why its leaking!
