Found why I was leaking oil
« on: Mar 15, 2017, 01:10:03 »
Pulled the engine on my cb450 after the oil started seeping from the cylinders somewhere.  Found out it was from the base of the cylinders/engine case, the oil was soaking through the gasket from each cylinder equally.  used a scraper to get the remaining gasket and found there were no burrs on either side of the mating surface.  Not going to take it to a machine shop to get it perfectly flat.

So, can I put honda bond on each side of the new gasket to stop this from happening again?
