Rocker cover

Hi new here first post, Hi all ive been offerd a 95 2.0 Turbo that just had head gaskit fitted and the head skimmed and preasure checked. All OK, the problem is that he is selling it with a leaky Rocker cover. Does this sound suss, as i didnt think that was too mutch of a job. He said he didnt want to spend any more on it. Is it worth it or not, he only wants 1200
Thanks Dave

Re: Rocker cover

rockers can leak after a rebuild,can be a simple fix,also the bolt collars can become weak and weap,2 of mine are doing it,sorting that out when i can be bothered

1200 sounds worth have a bash at for sure..

Re: Rocker cover

id ask for the gaskets to be repaired, or take someone who knows what they are doing with you, get them to wipe the area down and recheck for leaks, if its something else you would be better knowing before you take ownership of it imho.

Re: Rocker cover

rocker cover gaskets arn't anywhere near that iirc, pretty sure i heard 300 last time, headgaskets tend to be upwards of that.

as said though depends what the cause is and what needs replacing.
