216 Oil Leaks

And now we’ve seen it all! A real example of American ingenuity.

Designed by an aftermarket company to keep an over tightened valve cover from leaking motor oil down the engine sides.  A metal band is pushed over and around the base of the valve cover.  Brass U-brackets are then secured by the two valve cover studs.  This creates equal pressure around the valve cover perimeter to stop the leaks down the side of the engine.

Scott states he has seen these brackets on another 216 engine. Maybe a company in that area once offered them at local auto parts stores.
