    Cam chain tensioner gasket is leaking so I'm looking to gather the required bits during the week for a go at fixing it over the bank holiday weekend.
    Aside from the cam chain tensioner gasket, the half moon gasket and the tensioner tool (3366) is there anything else I should be purchasing?

    A little dab of sealant on part of the gasket helps

    Thanks everyone.
    So the current list is:

    cam chain tensioner gasket
    half moon gasket
    sealant
    rocker cover gasket set

    Anything else worth adding?
    Also I assume this all can be purchased through TPS?

    Aside from Hylomar Blue, I assume Loctite 5926 could also be used?
