oil leak

Post by Geofd »

just started my 86 interstate today after winter storage.....started right up runs perfect....while warming up and still on the side stand notice a dripfrom the bottom of the valve cover....it started pouring out so i haven't checked it again.....would that be the gasket being cold and needing to expand???? thanks

Are you sure that is exactly where it is coming from? Fluid leaks can often masquerade their source, with it appearing to come from the lowest point.
