Photo DIY- M112 Breather Cover Re-Sealing

This is a "Supplement" to the Valve Cover Gasket Repair job.

Apparently, it is the BREATHER Covers which are the Usual offenders for a Cover-Area leak. So, a good idea to re-seal during a Valve Cover Gasket change.


Now, Since part of the Breather Cover is involved in the Valve Cover 9 Nm Torquing Process??? I think the Re-Sealing is best done with the Valve Cover ALREADY INSTALLED!!! With Only 10 Minutes of Usable Work-Time before it sets-up? I think this is NOT enough time to do the ENTIRE Valve Cover Install.

You will see, the 4 Nm Aluminum screws only cause a "Partial" Expression/Oozing-Out of the Sealant.. the 9 Nm torque really squishes out the sealant, soooo, I think the Valve cover should already be in place, ready for Final Torquing.


***IMPORTANT NOTE***!!!! You Really should allow a 24 Hour "Cure" time before Starting the Engine, after Re-Sealing!!!!!!

Be sure to order NEW Aluminum Breather Cover Screws, as they get quite deformed after one use.

Hey!

Yes, you are correct on the Sealant part#.

You can also source the material under "Loctite 5970".

If I may extend one word of Caution!!!!

LOOK CAREFULLY AT EXPIRAITON DATE!!!!!

The Cartridge I purchased at my local dealer was AT expiration date when I purchased... but did the job a few months later.

HAD TOO RE-DO the whole thing after very short time due to the Sealant being bad.... (It never Cured!! Despite 24 Cure time, prior to starting enging).
