Oil leak suction hose connection T140D
Iím am having a hell of a time sorting an oil leak coming from the suction hose to oil block connection. It appears to me itís leaking between the hose and pipe no matter how tight or how many clamps I fit. I even replaced the oil block assembly with a new one, fitted new gasket, hose and hose clamp but no success stopping this connection point weeping. I even tried two clamps but it continues weeping around hose end runs back down outside hose and drips off the sump plate.
Could this be pressure coming back down the suction line from worn oil pump check valves etc? Anyone else have issues with this pipe leaking what was the fix?
Thanks for any help.
