On any 95+, the hole has machined flat head surface under it - as long as the pink goop sealing the cam cover is still intact, nothing gets in or out. Not even oil.

Hmmm, mine seems to have oil around it...

I'm guessing it's from the oil cap gasket which I will replace when I change to my winter oil in a few months. I will keep an eye on it.

I still have no idea what a henway is, though... hahahaha

Thanks for posting those links, S.

:lol:
It's a "pun trap" - i.e. someone says "Maybe your henway's broken". You go "what's a henway?", which sounds like "what does a hen weigh?", and then the reply is "oh, about 5 pounds."

It's kind of dry. Not the henway - the joke. ;) :lol:
