Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Hi everyone I had a oil leak on my 4e-fe 1.3 engine.  It came from under one of the 10mm nuts that hold down the rocker cover. I was able to fit it by taking out the old washer with porous seal and replacing it with a dowty washer which seems to do the trick.

Its a oil, or petrol s innerealing washer copper outer rubber but the main point was it replaced on the last service.

Yes you might get away without changing it onece but eventually if you dont replace it will fail thats why you replace it when doing a oil change.

Oil leaking is a mot fail point but it depents on the amount leaking!.

The company has its origins as the Aircraft Components Company in 1931 and the work of British inventor and businessman George Dowty. In 1934, Dowty achieved its breakthrough sale of its innovative undercarriage designs, being contracted by the Gloster Aircraft Company to provide oleo struts for the Gloster Gauntlet biplane. In 1935, as the business expanded to meet demand, Dowty founded a new manufacturing venture to produce his aviation products, which was named Dowty Aviation
