You should read up abit on these engines to make sure you understand the details but the basic plan would be to remove the rocker shafts (just the ones that are leaking if you like). Install RSR rocker shaft seals ( these are rubber "washers" that go in the shaft grooves). Re-install rocker shafts.

Things to watch for: Clean ends of shafts and bores before trying to remove shafts so the bores don't get scratched. Turn crank to get rocker on the "heal" so there is no friction from the rocker arm. The shafts must go in so the rocker arm is centered on the shaft. One side of the bore is fatter than the other so the shaft is recessed in more on one side than the other.

Some recommend re-installing dry to get a better seal and then oiling the shaft after it's installed (there is a convenient hole in the rocker arm for this purpose).

Good luck
