Thread: upper o-ring

  1. #1

    upper o-ring

    changed oil filter and tore upper oil filter housing oring.
    no dealer in area so i super glued it together. it seams the thicker lower oring does all the work, the upper oring is so thin it looks more like a nuicense oil stopper. any comments.
    will order a new one but wanted to go boating. it also didnt leak.

    I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you have the lower o-ring intact - you're fine.

    whenever you do an oil change have a new one handy cause you can't save it when taking the cover off. it's just a dust seal so you're safe

    Cant save it? Ive done 3 or 4 oil changed and never made any marks on any of the orings and I do reuse them everytime.

    Ummmm... I just remove the bolt. then work it off by hand. Try reaching around the back left corner of it and sticking ur finger or finger nail against the lip of the cap. That should lift that side up a good amount. Then over to the throttle body side. Then just work it off. Works like a charm everytime.

    Make sure u put some oil on them when going in.
