getting frustrated (oil leak)

Recommended Posts

Anyways I got my truck back a few weeks ago after getting a new block to replace the cracked 53. There was a small oil leak where the stock lift pump bolts to a plate on the side of the block. Fixed that. Then the o ring for the crank sensor was discovered have a leak as well so that was fixed. Got it back from the mech and put a few hundred miles on her and I have now discovered by laying underneath the truck while it was running that I have a leak in the vicinity of the vacume pump. I'll try to get some pics up here tomorrow. I can see oil gathering at the bottom edge of where the vac pump meets the block. :banghead:.

OK. it was leaking from the gasket that goes in between the vacume pump and the timing cover. Yanked the vac pump and the power steering pump of as a unit this afternoon and put it on the bench. just waiting on the rebuild kit from geno's. Anyways while I was taking this mess off I noticed that the bracket that supports the p.s pump to the block was not there? Where can I get another bracket ?Luke

With age comes leaks... The only thing on the drivers side of the engine is the cam cover or tappet cover or vacuum pump. http://www.fixinrams.com/id21.html

Hey now Mike, my 92 ctd has some oil on the bottom but no drips. We're talkin' 20 year old truck with over 350 k. I even parked it on a brand new driveway today at a million dollar home :tongue:

Some people are lucky... I must be unlucky to have a friend bring his 92 Dodge down and have it slobber at least a goot pint on the floor of my shop. :stuned: That truck was defiantly not house broke... :lmao::lmao2: Well after getting out my tools and cussin' at it for a good 6 hours I fixed that problem (Tappet Cover Gasket) Some people get lucky and keep the oil leaks to a minimum and other are just a rolling oil well squirting it everywhere... :duh:
