there i sa bit of my engine that has been missing for over 2000 miles--and i donot remember ever seeing it in place. isnt something one would look for--is the plug or cap to the hole which is used to adjust the engine. could be for timing adjustments--i never had to have timing adjusted so i didnt think about the problem being something so simple.
this is a small plug or cap that covers a little adjustment port on the block near the area of the lift pump, only is in the block.
also during the purchase and payment prolongation, one of the members here decided to slander, libel and harass me for his own purposes--i had to make him unable to contact me . is nice to stand up for friends--but is also nice to know both sides of a story. try having years of oil not able to remain inside engine--lol--while sailing a rocky lee shore...while living on ssdi and having to hire a mechanic to make sure engine doesnt detonate due to lack of oil.
i have had to hire a mechanic to travel with me so i could learn why i could not hold oil in my engine. granted i make minimal income, as a disabled person---so the need for having a diesel mechanic travel with me at premium rates is not a fun idea. nor is it conducive of survival on a limited income.
i thankyou for the referral for the engine i so badly needed and still do need--as i have no idea what this plug or cap is or looks like, i have no idea for what to seek here in mexico so i can try to keep oil inside engine.
this little problem will not keep me from continuing with my sailing--repairs under way are what one does when cruising. .... however, after more than 3 yrs of trying to find the leak and finally learning it is due to a missing part we cannot locate under the engine .... at least we know why the oil doesnt remain inside engine while running. this has been a true challenge.
