Re: Oil return line plugged?

The pressure pushes the oil through the filter. There is a pressure drop between the inlet and drain due to this. This means the drain hole sees less pressure than the inlet.

Re: Valve assembly keepers

I once had some intake valves stuck pretty bad due to varnish. A little car cleaner loosened them up in the guide.

Re: Whats the secret to removing the oil filter?

Put a screwdriver through the wire and pry up. It limits the range and gives you better control. It will keep the oil from flying all over the place.

Re: How to make a copy of a post
