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.
