Splash shield

November 08, 2013
The inner splash shield rubbed my rocker arms, so I removed it. I was getting a very minor leak at the cork gasket, so I replaced it with a paper/plastic gasket. In the future, I'll scuff the breather and valve cover surface to aid the RTV in sealing. Other wise, a very nice piece.
Yes, I recommend this product.
