Nicely done! Mind if I copy-paste it into the reference library here? Just in case MDOC goes down?

...though you missed one trick. MD372348: Alloy Half-moon seal, replaces the rubber half-moon seal under the rocker cover. Use grey silicone (the stiffer, high-strength stuff, as used on the sump) when fitting the alloy halfmoon. Your rocker cover will never leak again.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

Be my guest. :)
Never knew such a thing existed! Should mine go again that will be getting whacked in there, cheers!
