I did a first oil change & valve adjustment on my new '82 Diesel Westy
today, and noticed an oil leak from the front edge of the head gasket, near
the large oil return gallery. Of course, with the engine at 50 degrees, the oil
tends to pool at that spot, so I don't know how quickly it leaks.
The PO claims this was a rebuild last year, and I have no reason to doubt
him. Is it worth checking the torque on the head bolts? While I don't plan
on keeping this engine for ever, I'd like to ensure it lasts the summer
without a problem.
