razorback11 Posted May 8, 2016 Share Posted May 8, 2016 Ladies and Gents. I finally started my END711engine after tearing it down and putting it back together. However, I need to ask...I have the large oil filter that hangs off the drivers side of the block...you know the one...bout the size of a small trash can and holds about 3 gallons of oil. Well I have tried everything I know to get it to stop leaking oil around the seam where the bottom of the can meets the top. I have drained it twice, cleaned it up mounted the O-ring (which looks good...don't think it needs replacing. Last time I put the O-ring on with RTV. I tighten the big round clamp as tight as it will go but every time I turn the engine over and oil pressure builds oil come spraying out of that seam. I am out of ideas at the moment. before I drain the oil back out for another try...thought I would ask the experts. What am I doing wrong?
