Headgasket Leak

Recommended Posts

I have just noticed an oil leak from the headgasket in my ENDT 673, it is a real slow leak it seems to just seep a little bit, is this normal, or is it time to tear in to it

I'll second that.

If it's otherwise running well, leave it alone.

I can't find a place on my 673 that DON'T leak something. Runs too well to ever take it apart.

(I'm checking for GREEN paint, as maybe someone swapped motors in the past LOL!)

I'll 3rd that thought.When I was in the Marine Corps I got to fly in a helicopter a few times.The crew chief would always give his little "talk" pre-flight and would say,"If you see fluid leaking,that is fine.Don't stick your hands behind anything because you could loose fingers.If the fluid stops leaking we're in trouble because we're out of fluid!!!!!!!!!!!" So if it is just a small leak,doesn't smoke,stink,or become obnoxious,let it go.It might just be a bolt that needs torque checked.
