YES.... umm look at it after you drive it and see if there is OIL ....LEAKING anywhere other wise...it wouldnt be a leaky valve coverLUDExCONDUCT said:I just installed a valve cover I polished on the lude. I'm not sure if I used enough Hondabond. Any way to tell if the valve cover is leaking?
Yeah what he said. Did you replace the gasket? You don't really need to but it's best to. You would really notice if you had a leak also. As long as you torqued the bolts down to spec. If you're going to go tighten them again, don't do too much, cause those things snap EASY!! I broke one real easy.bb6flier said:You don't really need that much Honda bond for the valve cover gasket, just a little dab on the corners that meet the cam caps (8-spots in all). If you thightened it down correctly you shouldn't have any leakage.
