Hi everyone, I just got a '72 CL350 engine, and its running wonderful and even smokes my old SL350 engine not sure why though. My question is I have an oil leak around the cam chain tensioner... what would you suggest I do to fix this matter? I was thinking some copper RTV make a gasket, but I am unsure what else I would need to do...do I need to reset the tensioner? or can I simply unbolt it and bolt it back on? Thanks!

Got this fixed, I simply used some copper RTV make-a-gasket. There was only like 1/8 of the gasket left, someone must've taken it off at some point. I however noticed a bit of wear on the roller you can see with the tensioner off, is there anyway to replace that one roller, without committing to a entire topend job? I have several laying around in wonderful shape!
