I have a 1968 A65l with a rebuilt engine.

An SRM pump and remote oil filter were installed during the re-build.

My problem is I that the oil pressure runs to high at cruising speed.
Pressure begins to raise and begins to weep from the left side head stud.

I'll bring it to a good mechanic for a pressure check and look a look-see., but he is swamped.
Any ideas on what is causing the problem?

Thank you,

Took it out 40 miles and no more rocker cover leak.

Planed cover on wet/dry sandpaper on plate of glass to make cover completely flat, used O-rings on center studs, used Permatex Aviation gasket sealer on both sides of a new gasket, as suggested. No more leaks!

Thanks guys!!
