I've got a fair bit of oil coming out of this hole in between cylinders 4 and 6. It's just under the level of the rocker cover gasket. You can see it in between the two injectors in the photos. I hadn't noticed it before and wondered if there should be some sort of bung or cover for it? Any help is much appreciated!

Rocker cover gasket was changed about a month ago for the roadworthy! Funny thing is, I couldn't see any oil leaks before it was changed. That hole isn't meant to be plugged then?

are you saying it was a series 1 and they blocked the breather on the rocker cover?

It is a series 1. The hole isn't blocked up at all though, and is leaking quite a bit of oil. Is that where the breather should go?I suppose it's possible that a pipe was removed when the gasket was done, and not put back.

Mine had same leak but replaced rocker cover gasket and was all good, i looked at all the engines at the wreckers and no cars there had a plug for that hole either, it's just a blind hole that wasn't used for anything with the VN engines...

VN series II custom :) and VZ exec
its just a bolt hole, but goes now where, but oil will sit there, on the left side the alternator bracket bolts there i would clean it first, but your manifold could be leaking, or they didnt tighten th bolts up on the rocker covers enough,
cheers, nick

Ok. Thanks for that. Looks like i'll end up doing the rocker cover gasket again. I'll do it myself this time though!!
