    Hi Guys

    Just after some advice,
    I am looking to get my rocker cover refurbished on the Prelude due to the common paint peel and the dude who is going to refurb the cover for me says that the cover he has got to refub has some additional holes on the underside of the rocker cover (on the baffle cover) - these are circled in red

    Would this have any effect on the normal running of the engine?

    Thanks guys

    Could be to allow oil to drop on to strategic places on the head ??

    Would that be a good thing?

    Don't think it's anything to worry yourself about. Can't see a rocker cover being used to do a critical job such as oil control.

    I had the same thoughts but I am a worrier most of the time - lol.
    The guy informed me it should be fine but just wanted to check.
    Will tell him to go ahead so I can have a fresh OEM wrinkle red cover for my H22 :Smile:
    Cheers Speedygee,
