Guys I am relatively new here and definitely not a mechanic. I have a 1984 Dresser TD7E. I had the engine completely rebuilt top to bottom. I just have got it installed back in the dozer. The problem that I am having is the oil goes to the valve cover and starts pushing out around the bolts. It dosen't seem to be draining back to the oil pan. The head was completely redone and all new gaskets. What would cause this? I had the oil pan dropped along with taking the valve cover off and the side plate. I poured a small amount of WD40 in the valve area close to each cylinder and it drains all the way to the ground.
This one is complicated. at least for me. Engine running in both pictures. Key Off Above The Coolant Temp and Fuel gauge will not work with the key ON but the fuel gauge works with key OFF. Temp gauge only worked for 2 days. have another posting on the issue Fuel Gauge is Correct. main tank almost empty auxiliary full Key On Below Any Thoughts will be appreciated.
I will try to be brief but have a lot to cover. Just overhauled 656G. Polished crank, new main and rod bearings. New piston and sleeves. Oil lite blinking at low idle. Put gauge on it and found to be around 6 pounds. Order and installed new oil regulating poppet and spring. Still low. Ordered and installed new oil pump. At 1600 rpm pressure is 20 lbs and drops as it gets warmed up. Using IH SAE 30 oil. I am stumped. Took pan back off and plastic gauged one rod and one main. Both checked out good. Runs about 6 lbs at idle. Ran with valve cover off and drip seems normal. HELP
