1933VL Over Oiling
My 33VC has always dripped a little oil upon stopping, I understand total loss. All of a sudden it it dripping a lot. There will be a large pie plate size puddle and a drip line going up my driveway. I have measured the oil over the last 5K miles when I empty the crankcase and it is usually around 7-8 ozs. Now I am getting 12+ ozs. I thought it might be the check valve in the oil tank, so I took it apart. The seat looked good and spring was tight but I replaced the ball anyway and it did not leak a single drop after sitting over night. I had someone tell me that if the control coil from the throttle came loose at the oil pump, it would default to full open so as not to damage the motor. The cable is still connected and appears to function properly when the throttle is opened. I have never had to adjust the oil pump. What do I do next?
Thanks for the help!
