To avoid a repeat :



I've also had these cracked elbows and seen others, the cause is using non-Honda o-rings of a standard metric size (nr.21 in the picture above). These will fit nicely in the grove but are just a bit fatter. Now tighten those two little bolts holding the elbow to the cylinder head, the elbow will not be flat on the machined surface because of the oversize o-ring and crack.



You won't really notice this untill you fill the cooling system or even later when things get warm and the pressure builds.



The lesson learned : if you don't have the correct Honda-sized o-rings, just use the old ones and a smear of sealant. Do not use other o-rings even if they seem to fit nicely.

I rememebr when i did mine I couldnt find new ones to fit, so i reused the old ones. I am actually surprised they DONT leak. Was all set to stuff them with sealant but go figure

Good point.I have an O-ring kit and there's nothing in it that I would use for this job.Some of the Rings can be used for the transfer pipes.I've re-used old rings and clear silicone bath sealer before
