Found source of oil leak.
« on: November 08, 2013, 04:10:52 PM »
It was neither the oil pan nor the oil pressure sending unit.

It appears to be a hairline crack of some sort below the hole that holds my belt cover bracket.
Basically cleaned the engine real well, then road it down the road and back and looked. The oil pools here, then basically gets all over everything after enough oil seeps down and goes everywhere.  Now the question is, can I fix it by mushing a bunch of gasket maker in there or am I going to have to buy a whole new oil pump assembly... =/

Well, I think I may have fixed it using some JB Weld.

Well its a good thing that you found it. Sounds like a crappy design flaw. At least it looks fixable. JB to the rescue!

With it being under pressure I would vnot have thought it would have held either. You are living right!

Well it was like a pin prick of a hole, not very big at all.  I couldn\'t even spot it till I got right up on it and could see the oil around it bubbling ever so slightly.

So I put a layer of JB on.  Let it dry, but another layer let it dry, then a third layer.

I can\'t imagine such a small hole being able to blow out JB Weld once its cured.
