SOURCE: replace rear rocker box gasket

Replacing the silicone gaskets between the rocker box cover is not that difficult. Simply take the bolts out and lift the cover off, replace the gasket, put the cover back on with the bolts loose and line them up correctly. Then tighten the bolts to about 80 - 100 inch pounds of torque.

If the leak is coming from below the lower rocker plate where it mates with the head, this is a bit more difficult and I'd suggest taking the bike to a repair shop. However, if you'ver mechanically inclined and have the tools, even that is a job that can be done by an amateur mechanic. If this is the case, please ro-post and I'll tell you step by step what you need to do to replace the gaskets beneath the lower rocker plate.

Good Luck
Steve

Rear rocker box leak on 2004 sportster XL 1200 C


It's possible one of the gaskets got pinched, or one of the cover pieces is warped. Either way, it's gonna have to come apart again to fix it.

Sportster rocker box installation


Hi Anonymous, roll the engine over untill all pushrods are as low as possible, torque rocker boxes in a criss cross pattern in 5 lb. increments, manually roll over engine slowly without spark plugs before firing to make sure all the children have enough room to play. Good luck

I have a loud tapping in my front rocker box on my 2000 harley 1200 sportster custom i have pulled top and middle covers but the valve springs look fine and pushrods seem fine an thoughts?


I could be the bushings in the rocker arms and the rocker arm shafts. Bring the piston to top dead center on the cylinder that has the noise. Both valves should be closed. Allow about five minutes for the tappets to bleed down on that cylinder. When you can spin both of the pushrods with your fingers, remove the 5/16 inch bolts on the right hand side (pushrod side) of the head. This should allow you to push the rocker arm shaft out and remove the rocker arm. You may have to gently tap the rocker arm shafts out but it should not be difficult to get them out. Do not mix the rocker arms and their shafts up. Keep them together. Check the bushings in the rocker arms and the rocker arm shafts for wear. The bushings can be replaced and use new rocker arm shafts if this turns out out to be the problem. Check the face of the rocker arm where it pushes down on the valve stem for wear as well.

Rear rocker cover gasket is leaking


No problem except that the a couple of the bolts that hold the rocker cover on are pretty close quarters. Simply take the four bolts out and replace the gaskets. Make sure that you get the middle and top part properly aligned before tightening up the bolts. Torque is 100 inch pounds.

Good Luck

Oil leak out of front cylinder between cyl.head and top


sounds like a blown rocker cover gasket,its quite common,although you may have a warped rocker cover thats quite common on Harleys as well,order a new gasket,which you'll need anyway,while you've got the rocker cover off check for warp with a straight edge.if the cover is warped order a new one, Harley were recalling a few bikes not long ago to replace the same thing,but l think they were around 04-05 sporties cant be sure.
