FAQ 52

Question: I rebuilt my engine, and now the pushrod tubes are leaking. Is this normal?

Answer: VW engines should not leak oil. I think you need new pushrod tubes and seals. I seem to remember that there are little gaskets on each end of the tubes.

Important: put the seam of the tube up (towards the cylinder). Apparently the seams can leak.

Mine are tight, and very little oil comes out of my engine.
