  • 1950 COMMANDER ENGINE

    Hi to all...a question:...the fuel pump shield..part #103-20.. has two bolts that hold it to the block. These bolts tend to leak a little oil out of them...there is no gromet of any kind on them so ...what is the best way to stop these little leaks from these two bolts ?..........thanks,John

    Do these bolts go through the tappet covers? If so they're was originally copper crush washers that sealed them. The gasket sets being sold today have a fiber crushwasher that is installed under the head of the bolt. I'd try a snug fitting o-ring or sealing washer like described above.

      That the nature of the beast. I have 2 245 engines setting here. Those bolts do not touch the tappet cover. I would use silicon, or rubber o-ring or copper o-rings washers. What ever works.

        But wait, isn't that oil to keep the fuel pump shield from rusting?

          On close inspection of the bolts I do see the copper crush washers...and crushed they are...I am leaning toward the rubber washers...I will see what NAPA has...thanks to all...John
