yep, same guy, I searched and the consensus was that the motor will have to be pulled to get the oil cooler out. I don't really want to, but I guess that I will tackle that job on my own this week. I did see the motor on the ground myself, and the top is clean.

Before you do pull he engine out do one more thing.
Get your self a carburetor cleaner and clean the area you see the oil. Then wipe totaly dry and run the engine as you did before but not that long ...Double check a get ready for the job...Make sure you unplug all you have to.Also don`t forget on your trany back up light switch wire with two connectors,disconnect heater hoses....among other obvious things.If you need some guidance let me know i will write some tuto for you.

The duck tape is to hold the wax JB weld from dripping out of the hole when first applied for the TSB

Yes, it looks to me as if it was leaking behind the oil cooler.I have JB Weld on it now with a piece of duct tape setting up .

jj..that looks like old dirt mix with some oil...Which the mechanic who just replaced the oil cooler did not bother to clean and mainly did not put JBweld on the plug..i guess he does not know about this problem?
Ivan
2 strokes, i did asked you..did you get the old cooler back..was the oil leak before the replacement the same?i wonder if your old cooler was leaking at all?

I was afraid it would be that...

I guess you know never take you car back to this guy. Some of that dirt if close to the large O ring joint.

The fix should look like this:

Iíve been trying to understand how this fix work since I will be removing my oil cooler soon and this explains it nicely for the first time.

Thank you for this.

Correct.... he will not be seeing me car again. I can do the work myself, sometimes I just donít want to. I did get the old cooler back. At the time he did send me a video of him pressure testing the old one, and it showed a leak. But who knows????
