Having a lot of fun trying to stop a leak from the rear of the rocker cover
of the BN3.


It's a standard early C-series six-cylinder and pressed steel rocker cover
with dome shape nuts.


The question is whether the accepted practice is to stick the cork gasket to
the rocker cover with no jointing compound between the gasket and cylinder
head. OR is the accepted practice to apply jointing compound to both
