Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

I just replaced a few of the photos with different settings so hopefully they show up. If not, my build thread may become retired.

Thanks for checking. Maybe I have it figured out.

OK I think I have it fixed. I wasn't able to fix the previous posts (I think the time for editing had passed). So hopefully this will work going forward. Me typing with no pictures will be too boring to contemplate.

Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

On that note I guess I will add one more. Had to unwrap and start re-wrapping the relay harness as I need to have the wires pointed the opposite direction from how they were originally put together:

Thanks Eric, glad you enjoy them. I bought a iPhone XR this past summer and really like it. When I post larger pictures it's amazing to see the detail.

Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

I think I may know the solution but I'm a little concerned. I noticed about a month ago the bottom of my oil filter on my crate engine had a drop of oil on it. I wiped it off so I could keep an eye on it and a new drop appears about once a week. I gave the filter an additional quarter turn to tighten it up but it didn't make much difference.



The picture makes it look like there is more oil than there really is - it's typically just a drop and appears to be originating directly above the QR code on the filter. I am thinking for whatever reason the gasket just has not seated well and I am the victim of seepage. Should I swap out the filter for another and see if it corrects the issue?

Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

Tim, Remove the filter and look for signs of the filter can contacting the casting so
as not allowing the filter gasket to actually seat (compress). Somewhere I read where
the gasket is thicker on a certain brand that I can't recall right now. Maybe Wix/Napa?
Also when you installed the filter did you spread a film of oil on the gasket? Common practice.

Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

The filter looks like it has a slight skew to it. In the photo, there are other features that are in the view that show the filter is not parallel. Optical illusion?

Thanks Al. I actually didn't install the filter and have done nothing more than tighten it a 1/8 or 1/4 turn. This is a crate engine that was dynoed before it came to me. I am sure it is something straightforward like you are describing but a little unnerving nonetheless on a brand new engine.

The engine was shipped with the run-in oil in it so thinking I can just swap out the filter without draining the oil and see if it corrects the problem.

It doesn't look like it just looking at it (not the picture) but I think the easiest fix is to replace it and see what happens.

Re: Tim's 69 Grocery Getter

I would check the oil block off plate above the filter. Seems more likely to weep oil imho.
