Seriously, I might lift the lid 1/2 inch and put a little HondaBond on it. If I keep lifting this engine in and out, I might easily end up in the hospital.
Have you switched out the bolt where it is leaking with your other SL? Is it only leaking at that bolt or around the head gasket? Might loosen the bolts and re-tighten/torque them if its the head. Maybe get some gasket material and make a small thin gasket to go behind it (the bolt)and see if that helps first. Drew
