    HEI oil leak

    I bought a used :2- and was wondering if there is supposed to be a o ring or gasket where it drops into the whole?
    Originally when I installed it, I put an o ring on the shaft. It leaks.

    Removing it right now and was wondering if I could put some RTV or the "right stuff" around the shaft where it drops in and wait til it sets and then tighten it down or use nothing?

    If I use nothing is there a chance of mucking up the gears from tightening it down too far?

    BTW, amc 360

    Thanks.

    I knew there had to be something in between both surfaces.

    Just tried a real thin bead of the" right stuff". Hope this will fix it.

    that will be squishy and could put too much for on the gears and wear them out.....don't want to change a cam.

    better get a paper gasket in there....check out step #9 in the instructions.
