My friends custom,
The factory machine work on the boxes and covers was so bad
we could see where we needed permatex.
It most likely was the chrome. Just not super even.
My Black Roadster rockers and covers are weaping a little.
I can see why but Its not enough to warrent the work yet..
Its hard for me to tear into a perfect running engine.
I never have to add any oil.
