[Nighthawk Lovers] Oil is leaking from the rubber (half-circle) gaskets under the valve cover.

Thank you Graham. I’ll go with the Squirrel theory. Clever little buggers. > On 14 Aug 2019, at 13:27, Graham Rogers wrote: > > I once replaced them and they were an easy fit. Watching a squirrel slide > down a Vaseline lathered bird feeder pole explains that. > >> On Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at
