Re: Westerbeke Oil Pan leak

I thought I had an oil pan leak on my Westerbeke 4-107. The engine is tilted aft and the oil dripped from the port side of the engine. After cleaning and fretting about replacing the gasket, I saw tiny holes in the timing chain cover. I sanded the areas and used JB Weld to fill the holes. No more oil leak.
