So since i replaced my rocker cover gaskets b](used genuine parts)[/b] the dam thing is still leaking on the drivers side, i replaced the half moon things, used sealer with them and new seals for the bolts. What else could be causing it to leak?

did you use GENUINE gaskets ? especially the wee bolt ones

Try putting a washer behind all the bolts.

Yeah i might pull it apart tonight and check everything is right, if all else fails will give this a go.

Don\'t put washers behind the bolts, if you\'re resorting to that you\'re doing something wrong.

Here\'s a couple tips that I make use of and I never have a rocker cover leak.

Clean the absolute f**k out of the mating surface that the gasket touches on the head. Most the time the reason they leak is because they haven\'t been cleaned properly. Use brake clean not degreaser or petrol as brake clean doesn\'t leave a residue.

Next tip is use three bond gasket maker, amazing stuff. I apply it to the corners of the cam caps as shown except on the head not the gasket and I also put a little bit right the way around the head where the gasket touches. Probably unnecessary but then again, mine never leak.

Will give it ago, have taken it off again and re sealed everything but it is still leaking, driving me insane :-\ Might have to try using the sealer around the whole thing as im running out of choices and i dont want to have to pay some one to do it ::)

Just thought i\'d mention another option with the gaskets, The site below is half the price of the dealers in NZ and are genuine parts.

13272AA063 2 23.14$

13293AA051 2 9.56$

11051AA070 2 4.80$

13271AA051 12 14.40$

The link is below:

They have a lot of Subaru bits but no online catalogue so i use the opposedforces site.

Might be worth mentioning what engine those part numbers suit?

Never used it personally, but should do the trick just fine. Looks like that's the higher temp option usable with exhaust parts etc. The ultra black option is dedicated for oil resistance, so maybe slightly better for valve covers.
