If your engine is serviced on time ,decarbed ,oil pump etc checked at reasonable intervals the oe bush does it's job.

Phosphor Bronze
"Above Material Possesses Good Anti Friction Properties Combined with Plasticity & Suitable for Heavy Loaded applications being applied where Lubrication is doubtful."
Hey, you got me all wrong. Take the Grandpa story in a lighter vein, didn't mean to offend you. Seems like I don't know you yet, so I will stop comparing the OE to phosphor.

And from your link, yes maybe PB bush has it's virtues, after all.

No Kuttapa, i wasn't offended. But since you used a Granpa story i just included it that's all. See, we all have our opinions formed and based on our experiences, what i have experienced with OE bush is bad and PB was better that's only reason why i am a believer in PB. I'm not trying to prove OE is bad, your experience proves otherwise. OE will perform well and as it's supposed to if the lubrication part is perfect. If the lubrication is not perfect then PB has an advantage and it lasts longer that's all.

Ok Sir. Next time I land up in TVM we can run a test against OE to PB, by running two engines with not enough oil.Last man standing wins...What say?

Rocker oil path is oil passage way that feeds the rockers. And there's an oil passage way inside the rocker block too.

Ah I see that you got the new type of head gasket. Sankar, does this have an asbestos layer in between? Or is it a normal gasket? What makes it better?

The material is of a different type (old is double layered copper with asbestos kind of sandwich), looks and feels like the material modern head gaskets are made of. This is also a multi layered gasket with an aluminium sheet in the middle which is sandwiched between asbestos like material and topped up with the black layer. The layers are pretty tighlty packed compared to old type gaskets. This gasket almost completely solves the oil leaking issues. The red circles on the gasket is a silicone kind of material which seals off the pushrod pipes. Silicone circle idea isn't new, many have been doing it on ordinary copper gaskets and is quite effective.


Gasketing a CI350/500 head is not an easy job if it's to be done perfectly. Many think that it's the gasket that hold the compression pressure, but it's not entirely true. Majority of the sealing has to be done by the spigot of the cylinder that goes into the combustion chamber and forms a seal with the head.

@desideep:let us see! just want to experiment for the betterment of bull? the leak through gasket sometimes can be fixed by polishing the outer surface of the cylinder and head;something like slight grinding so that both the faces pack perfectly!

BINGO !! No gasket can fix leaks if the surfaces are too much out of true(read uneven) and do not mate to each other. I had this problem with my 500, blew umpteen head gaskets, before I got the surfaces polished to even.

Old school mechs shun silicone though, so I had to apply silicone sealant after a service to the leak prone areas.
