Scott,

Do you mind sending me a message on how you post pictures on here?  Do you use your phone and an app?  I'm on the desktop and I see an icon "insert image" but I don't know how it works

^^^ That's what it looks like when I click that icon

I post pictures by going to the bottom of the new post (before I post it) and clicking on "additional options", click on "browse", find my picture file and double click on it, and done.  I think it only works if the pictures are under 196K.

Thanks Bevans!!  I never noticed "additional options" before.  Yea that should work perfectly.  I've been wanting to post pics of my bus and couldn't figure it out!!

Running almost against the governor for miles will also contribute to that. Walker Airsep will stop that.

He probably has a lot of silicone in place of gaskets causing most if that,I hate that stuff no matter what color it is ,I had to remove a blower yesterday to replace a owners silicone mess .A $2.25 gasket cost him a little over 500 bucks sad part was a shop did the work

Why would running against the governor make an engine leak more? Compared to say 1800 rpm. Is it a matter of crankcase pressure, or something else?

Chess, I don’t run against the governor for miles. Usually I’m running 1500-1600 rpm. Anyway, Toyota had 300,000 miles on her and was 20 years old. Time to get something new. I detailed it all in another thread somewhere here (can’t remember where). No the oil isn’t coming from the check valves. I have a catch can and empty that every so often. I only ever get a cup of oil out of that. It’s just coming from everywhere. Power steering, hoses, valve covers, oil pan gasket.

If that is a true DDEC 8v92 block it has a special silicone oil pan gasket with special bolts to keep from over tightening. I never saw those leak unless somebody used the wrong bolts and destroyed the gasket,lol that pan gasket cost a 100 bucks from Detroit the valve covers use the silicone gasket with bottoming bolts to keep it from squeezing to far down also

Glad your gearing allows for nice cruise. Those cooling fans can blow any leaks into a mist over miles and even small ones can be a nuisance. Some use those brooms across the rear bumper to lessen this, especially on the 71 series which seem to leak more than the 92 series. Probably better rings, special gaskets help a lot.

Gee, my newest 4X4 is 45 years old, but I did sell off my oldest that is 58 years old (Land Rover Series). I suppose most people want A/C, and that won't last so long.
