Little bit of oil coming out of filter cap screw

Postby ShawnAgne » Fri Oct 06, 2017 6:48 pm

While checking out if my induction tach is reading properly I noticed that I have some oil coming out of the screw that holds the filter in place. Any idea why this is happening?

Replace the brass washer between the bolt and lid.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hi,
You could check and see if the bolt is tight.
Below is a listing for a new copper washer at TM Tractor. A hardware store might sell them too. :)
