Found a smallish crack in the rocker cover, about 2cm. Leaking a bit of oil.
Can't find a replacement rocker cover, wondering if trying to find a welder to weld the cover is an option. I assume it is all alloy, and can be welded?

Cheers

If you do find someone who says they can weld it, get them to show you some of their work. Ive seen "oh yeh we can fix that" and then its a mess and didnt work. But saying that, welding ally castings is no easy task.

Just 5cents.

Welded mine up 2 weeks ago. A right royal PITA. Took about an hour of heating, wire brushing and grinding before i got a clean enough surface to weld with. Bet it cracked on the passenger side just in front of the vacuum pump? Mine cracked down the side as well as where its machined on the top. Did the trick though. No more oil leaks!
