Dipstick? Crank seal would leak when running (oil pressure)

Dipstick is dry. Leak is cocentrated in lf area of engine. The oil pump is up there (its external), crank seal, timing cover, and thats about it.

After degreasing and removing 18 layers of crap I found an interesting surprise....it looks to me like the timing cover, oil pump, water pump, ect,ect was all replaced in the not so distant past, which is great.

The leak is coming from behind the water pump where the timing cover, head and block all come together. A quick bit of research shows that when doing a timing set it is critical to apply liberal amounts of rtv to these corners along with the gasket in order to seal them up. My guess is that was not done. Looks like I get to pull it apart and reseal it all.

here is what I found after tearing it apart:

The timing components are definately new, the chain, guides, ect show zero wear....not only that but there are paint marker numbers and writing on the crank, block ect like the whole engine was gone through

Oil pressure has always been less than awsome....i found the pickup screen clogged with silicon.

Who ever did the timing components used the wrong type on silicon as it was amost chunky...no wonder it leaked.

I just lovr fixing other peoples hald ass work

So something was not adding up when I was putting it back together....there was no gasket for the part of the cover that was leaking...i got to looking and apparently the head gasket is suppose to extend beyond the block and cover the timing cover too but someone cut that portion off...so now it needs a head gasket...dam it

when you got the cam in your hand, "replace it" with the right cam those 22r motors run like a 2 stroke

I patched it together...i didnt replace the headgasket since the main part of the gasket is perfectly fine and doing its job it seemed overkill to tear the motor apart and replace it. I got the oil leak to stop 99% of the time and when it does leak its very very slight and for a trail only rig thats good enough for me.

Looks like i'm gonna be going to rocks and valleys early august and the 3 more days at windrock over labor day. Can't wait. I love wheeling this thing!

the oil pick up was full of rtv on my 22r when I rebuilt it also. a huge p.i.t.a! i estimated there were at least 34 full tubes of rtv used on that engine when i tore it down.

Went through and checked things over last night i preparation for bundy hill sunday....every thing looked good except:

How are you suppose to keep shackles tight?

This is my first leaf spring rig and no matter how often i tighten the darn things they loosen right back up after one ride. They don't get to the point they fall apart....just get to where the nuts are about finger tight and thats whee they stay
