I have had a bad oil leak coming from the timming cover for years and now im freaking tired of it and when ahead and dismentled the whole think to find the problem!
It all started when I was at idle with the engine hot and the oil press was like 5 psi.So I bought the TA pressure switch, but as it is, this switch only control oil press when the engine is reving, in wich usually oil pressure is not a problem.So then I bought the TA mutiple thickness oil pump gaskets and went ahead and tried to go a little tighter to get more oil press, the thing is I think I went to tight and I had like 20 psi at idle when its hot!But I kept it that way....until the leak started, it was really bad, its a small leak, but it get sprayed all over the passenger side engine compartement, inside the wheel and on the front right frame and all the directional linkage, the car is a mess and that makes me MAD! Now is there such thing as TOO MUCH oil press????if yes when is too much???Wheres the line??? Anyway, so I went ahead and change the gasket thickness again, more loose this time and got 10 psi at idle when hot. I kept it that way but still had the leak and now im trying to take care of it.
If you check the pics, you can see on the timming cover, where the oil goes back in the block, the timming cover is scratch, will it hold with gasket stuff??Im too poor to get the 700$ TA cover. Anyway, heres some pic of the engine, can you comment on it??? Is it like it should??? Thanks oh and I have notice I dont have the ''oil slinger'' on the crankshaft after the gear, ?? does it matter?? can I run it without it, what does it does???
