    wheres the oil coming from?

    ok, on the left cylinder, 72 cb350k4. i thought it was the cam seal under the points, so i removed the plate and rotor, and the seal was bone dry and looked brand new. so instead, while in there, i put o-rings under every bolt or nut that would come off. put it all back together, and there is still oil that looks to be coming out of my points cover. there is oil on my left plug wire, about 3 or 4 fins under the points cover, oil blown back onto the carb and air filter. for the life of me i cant figure out where the oil is coming from. any ideas?

    Either the gasket under the left side cam bearing or one of the o-rings on the rocker arm shafts. Either way the left side cam bearing needs to come off.

    1) Wash the motor. 2) Blow dry with exhust from shop vac or compressed air. 3) Spray the cheapest foot anti-fungal spray on motor and all conections. 4) when spray turns white run the motor 5) Look for wet spot.
