Timing sensor Leak

Is the gasket the spacer and O ring seals Right or wrong. Thanks Rob

So, yeah it's a Viton O-ring seal and the spacer is to set the timing (it's not really a gasket).

They commonly get loose and need to be snugged up. Sometimes that stops the weep, but really common for the O-ring to harden and flatten out. Mne also leaked through the wire and I JBWelded it . . .

Oh, and BTW, the O-ring I used is #112, according to my notes.

I think they leak through the sensor itself, in around one of the transitions between one material and another (steel to red epoxy or red epoxy to black case). Then it travels up the cable or out again between the cable and epoxy on the outside.

Stick a condom on it, seriously, try glueing a disk of plastic right across the surface covering the tip.

Don't stick a fat "O" ring on it, all that does is mess up the gap.
