Hard to say. I bought the car about 10 years ago and it was already "pressured."

Re: Rear Main Leak Bear with me

Here are 2 pics.
I took the inspection plate off and ran the engine. I didn't see anything special other than the oil on the left cap bolt. Nothing spitting with the engine idling.

On the pic...

In no specific order:

3. Definitely leaking, not spotting.
4. Didn't have the...

Re: Oil drain sealer

Thanks Al.


You're right of course about the thread but when the pipe is tightened snug, it's not oriented the correct way. I have to back it out about a 1/4 turn for it to be pointing in the...

Oil drain sealer

I'd like to use a bit of sealer on the little oil drain tube that runs out of the main bearing. Does it require a high-temp sealer?


Ultimate copper or the permatext red?

Re: To soak or not to soak

Oh, one more thing.
I want to use some type of thread lock on the little oil return tube. The one that extends from the main to the pan. Do I need a high temp thread lock there?

Re: To soak or not to soak

Thanks boys.


Also, I have a few studs to keep the 2 large gaskets lined up (engine in the car). Additionally, in the past, I've used a few dabs of weather strip adhesive to keep the gaskets on...

Is it necessary to soak the modern oil pan "rope" seal in oil?

Re: Steering Support on a 30 Roadster

Thanks Tom


The area under the dash is not actually flat, right? It has a radius to it. Are you suggesting, for example, that I shave down a some 1X1 oak stock and try to match the radius?
