Default M.net wont let me search "flyin miata aka conservative Miata" ?

Ok maybe it is just a fluke, but I went on m.net tonight to search "flyin miata gaskets suck" first and it went to a white screen. Then just "flyin miata gaskets" ... same thing. Then I searched "flyin miata" .. same thing again. Finally I searched "gaskets" and had no problem, then "flyin gaskets" and again no problem. Then i went back and tried to search anything with "flyin miata" with the same white screen every time.

Anyway, I think the gaskets that FM sold me are crap ... i found that I was leaking oil like a sieve out of their cam gasket and that is why my oil ran low and fuxxored my crankshaft. I also was leaking ever so slowly out of the cam cover gasket (brand new from FM) Now, maybe it was my fault, but i wanted to know if anyone else has had issues with their gaskets and stuff. I suppose M.net would edit anything out that even remotely said anything bad about FM.

maybe because it's trying to return all the threads with the phrase "miata" in it and it's timing out for the search query since like EVERY thread on m.net has the word "miata" in it.

you did silicone the valve cover right? it is in the manual. is the oring in 1 peice? also are the cam gaskets like the crank gasket if so are they straight sometimes if those type seals are crooked they will quickly fail.

I think supersayan is right, the term miata trips it out i guess. and no i didnt silicone it. damn and it was right there in my haynes manual too. K well i hope to do it right this time. It sucks being a noob and building engines, turboing miatas, building and installing megasquirts etc. Oh well, ill learn all these things in time.

When I bought my 88 Accord the PO said it "burned alot of oil". Whoever changed the cam cover gasket just didn't use silicone and it was spewing oil on the exhaust manifold. Not the kind of burning I was thinking of...

That really sucks about your car, good luck putting it back together!
