and NO, this is NOT my rig!

Last week, I posted this thread...
http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=101947

After all the work put into this engine, cleaning and painting everything, the oil leak was bothering me.
When driving, it would drip, and blow oil all over the oil pan, etc.

As a temporary fix, I decided to make a stainless steel bracket that would hold a Tampon over the leak, and absorb it, so the oil wouldn't end up everywhere.

Here it is...

Here's where the leak is...just above the pointer, on the seam...

We're getting ready...

Image

Had to figure this out, first timer

Image

Bracket's in place...

Image

Tampon's in...no need for that long string...

Image

Viola!!...

Ready to leak once more. I hope I only have to change it once a month!
