Bob,Is this an oil leak you speak of or is it the factory-installed antirust option?  I have it installed on my BJ8.

Could the cap be sealed from the outside with todays technology of sealants? Also, according to the external engine diagrams in the moss catalog it does not show the back of the engine or the cap.    Looking for answers to my continued oil leak problems.  Regards,  Bob Begani_______________________________________________
