Dip stick o-ring? Is there one?

Postby Justgosurfin » Fri Dec 13, 2019 3:04 pm

Is there meant to be an o ring at the handle?

Nope, just seals by that cap on it.

Take the filler cap off while it's running (don't mind the funny whirring noise) and see how much it's blowing out.
Another thought, if you have a vacuum leak in the AC system or brake booster it will have excess blowby. The vacuum pump exhausts thru the crankcase to help purge fumes.

Make sure the crankcase vent hose isn't crushed where it runs between the starter and block. ;)

Did this once before and it was hard to tell if it was bouncing around just from vibration or gases. I’ll get a video this week. Do I have to be using a computer to add a photo or video file?

You need a photo hosting site like Photobucket or Imgur. I haven't posted a pic in a couple years so I'm not up on the procedure.
