Magneto cover gasket leaking.


Recommended Posts

Here I am asking for help AGAIN!

Sorry guys. I have an oil leak fron my magneto cover - generator cover - I have tried gasket seal stuff the blue stuff ... still leaking. I tried cleaning off and fitting new gasket, TWICE ... still leaking. It looks like, on closer inspection, that it is leaking from the bottom bolt and not the gasket itself. Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks as always chaps.

You shouldn't really have oil in the generator area......so I'm not sure why you've got oil in there, unless the crankcase seal behind the alternator is leaking...... :?

B*gger!......I wonder if some metal putty would seal that?

would need to take it off and clean all traces of oil away before any kind of chemical metal or similar can be used but i dont see why it shouldnt work its either try that or get new casing
