Block Pressure Issue?
I had just made a trip across the state in my CJ 5, it was 3 hours on the highway at 70 + mph. Fastest and farthest Ive ever driven it.
As in my other Thead "I made it" there were no major issues.
When I got there I noticed oil has came out a little around the rubber oil fill plug, possibly around the valve cover, the face plate for old fuel pump, where dizzy goes into the block, and possibly around the oil pan a little bit.
Keep in mind, this engine was rebuilt about 5000 miles ago, and the compression ratings are good so its not the rings.
The fuel pump face plate was homemade and seemed a bit warped so I ordered one from summit.
I was going to replace the dizzy gasket but then I read about the PCV system so I want to make sure its working properly before replacing other stuff.
The front hole on the valve cover has a pcv valve that goes right to manifold vac, and the back hole goes to the air filter. Thats it, nothing goes to the purge canister(ive seen it both ways). I shake the valve and I can here it opening and closing, its fairly new, its one of the single nozzel valves, not the two.
I guess I expected this a little bit with that much speed and distance, and I didnt lose anyoil according to my dipstick but it made a little mess of things.
Any suggestions? Should I just start replacing gaskets or is this a block pressure issue?
