Oil check leak

Postby Jeffalgol » Thu Oct 01, 2020 7:03 pm

I’ve got a slow oil leak on my oil check on the side of my oil pan on my super a but I need more info. I tightened as much as I could with my hand but does it need to be tightened more with a wrench? Does it have a o ring? If so can I just take them out and replace them without removing the oil pan?

Back in my childhood, we always snugged them a bit with a plier. Don't try to tighten them too much, the wing can be broken off fairly easy. If they still leak, they are easily replaced, they just screw in with a pipe thread. A dab of pipe sealant would be a good idea.
