So I replaced the busted cover (lowside).
Now the new one is leaking oil.
How do I tighten the bolts without stripping them? I have no idea how much it needs. I did replace the gasket too, so that should be ok.
One thing is, there's a wire coming out of the cover, and there might be a space in there somewhere. Some one suggested I use RTV . Does this sound reasonable? Any other things I should look at?
