Pesky oil leak.

Recommended Posts

I drifted my own thread (What happened here?) to tell about Bo'ness, and the oil leak that made me retire.    So carry on here.

Home. Started engine to move to garage, quick look, still oozing from bottom of oil filter adaptor.   Today, adaptor off, square O-ring out.   

Looks perfect, no split, lying square in groove.   Replaced with spare one.  No leak!   None at all!

The only thing I could say was that the old one felt harder and stiffer than the new.  ?denatured by heat cycles?   Another example of poor quality rubber goods?   The engine, and old ring, have only about 3500 miles on them!
