    thinks its been going for a while but now the engine is rocking like crazy and you can push it from side to side by hand. Anyone had them done and how much would I be looking at? Also I have noticed there seems to be a small amount of oil around the base of where the oil filler is situated on the rocker cover. Its never been there before.
