Ok anyone who went to the miata meet at steves knows i have an oil leak, the leak was anywhere from .6-1 quart per 100 miles, it only leaked at high speed/pressure, and got slung around everywhere under the hood from the crank pulley.
I thought it was the crank seal but upon disasembly all the usual **** that is slick and oily when that fails was dry and in great shape. Then i noticed a new hole in my BE oil pump i geuss they used a different housing etc.
anyway here is my 1.6 stock oil pump
and here is my new BE oilpump after i jb welded the extra bolt hole
I measured the depth of the hole and it goes damn near all the way through so I thought it was worth a shot. Once the jbweld has cured i will post an update. Thoughts etc. anyone else seen this problem?
so should i take out the jb weld or do you think i will be ok?
well wtf did no one have any insight? Like i said before this is in the same area but it is a bolt hole that my stock **** did not have and all the bolts that i ran on my stock **** are installed. So lumping me into the mess of people who just didnt put there **** back together with all the bolts they needed to get the job done is BS. Seriuslly why do i even ask questions if you guys wont take what the **** i post serius?
Ah, different hole than what I thought. Mine has a press-fit plug in that hole. JB-weld should be fine then. I was working on sealing up my oil pan and pump today on the bench but found out I didn't have the oil pump o-ring or the pickup tube gasket. FML.
bryce ty so much that was all i wanted was for someone to actualy look at the problem. I am just as savvy as the next .net user but an extra set of eyes actualy looking at the situation helps a ton, it's not like i have 10 turbo miatas within a 50 mile radius that i eat lunch with every day.
Ok so after predigous amounts of jbweld, locktite, and, time etc the car still leaks oil i verified that it is comming out from beneath the crank pulley so at this point im probly gonna be pulling the motor and redoing the pan. you gotta love this ****.
