rsb502 Posted August 8, 2012 Share Posted August 8, 2012 I think I know what Im getting into but Ill ask anyway, I have an E9 that has some oil dripping out of the exhaust between manifold sections, appears to be coming from cyl 5 or 6. I had a friend stare at it with me and scratch his head and what we can come up with is either a stuck piston ring or the valve cover is filling with oil. The engine runs smooth at all rpms, doesnt smoke like its burning oil but I still have oil dripping from my manifold, there are no valve seals in an E9 that I know of its just a valve guide that is reamed to the proper I.D. for the valve so Im wondering if my rocker shaft or dynatard solenoid could be leakig enough oil to fill the valve cover high enough to run down the stem into the cylinder and out the exhaust, there is some oil seeping around the valve cover gasket that is just showing up so Im leaning toward a full cover, so what do the experts here think? ( I do actually plan to pull the covers Im just wondering if someone has done this already) ( Im gonna put two seal rings on the manifold when it goes back together too).
