Are you a retard?
Not only do i build/tune these cars on the sides, but i was a "honda" tech for a few months, until I started to go into the police academy, in tech school they taught us how to use "hondabond" correctly.. get serious dude, look at BRAND new motors.. they have hondabond w/e gasket is.. its a sealent..

Yep, exactly like that. I replaced with the metal one.

ROFL @ some people. I'm not dumb enough to use hondabond on the cam seal. Also, the oil leak is worse than that, it's leaking from the VC gasket too which, I'm gonna replace once I get out of class.


On a side note, what's that screw/nipple thingy in the hole where the radiator hose goes into?
My car just has a threaded hole there.

not sure what the nipple is in that picture, not my car, but on a side note, you did use an ebay cam seal, so its possible it wasnt machined right and isnt a perfect fit causing some oil to slip past, i do highly recommend using the password jdm version or blox version, they work much better then the OEM seals.

the golden eagle cam seal fixed my leak, but it does sound like your VC gasket is bad.

Yep. I used the cheapest metal cam seal from ebay. A slight lesson learned!

That is used to purge the air out when you replace your coolant.

LOL! Now we're calling names. This is just too funny. WOW!
See now it makes sense....my tech school didn't have a Hondabond class. My bad!!!
If you like to Hondabond everything then that's you. Don't start calling people names just 'cause they don't do what you do.
I've always used Honda seals and never had any issues w/o using sealant where it doesn't need it.
Let's not compare our car resume. Let's just say I work on Hondas as a living.

personal experience, used skunk2 cam seal. oiled up 3 o-rings, worked it in there, no leaks... picked all the hondabond out where the oem plastic one resided, did not re-use hondabond- not opposed to it though, but the skunk2 seal worked perfect, $25 shipped on ebay.

Default Re: Cam seal oil leak, B18B Integra

I just want to find out if anyone knows what aftermarket cam seals fit the B18B. I have a 94 LS with a B18B in it and I was going to get a Skunk2 cam seal for it, but I noticed on JHPs website it says specifically "Incompatible with B18A/B18B engines." Which one's fit the B18B?

Here's the page where it says that:

Any ideas?
The prob must be the ebay cam seal and/or you didn't clean the bore right, I have a b18b and bought a BWR cam seal, cleand the bore, lubed the cam seal with silicone grease and placed it in, torqued it w/ little leverage and 3 months later revving 7100 every day NO LEAKS! For the future always buy oem or oem plus

lol there's nothing wrong with using hondabond along with the cam seal. All my friends that work at Honda/acura use it all the time. No one wants a comeback.
