Some WD issues (oil leaks and radiator stuff)

So working on the WD tonight that I've been cleaning... I've noticed a few issues (three for now) Any insight or direction would be most appreciated.

I was running with the radiator cap off just sitting at a tad above idle for about 10 minutes, and I looked in and noticed bubbles in the radiator. There seems to be a wee bit of white foam around as well. Oil level and quality looks good however (nothing milky or anything). Radiator cap seems in good shape except for a wee bit of corrosion at the top of the stem, it's only about 10 years old.

Noticing that I seem to be getting oil coming out of the top of the front and back valve cover bolts after cleaning them last week? Seems weird it would wick up there.

Also notice I've got some oil coming down on the engine support bracket that goes between the two frame rails... I suspect this is from the front curved part of the oil pan gasket? Any good way to fix that without replacing the whole pan gasket, or other things to check? Didn't get a great picture of this one.

Aaron SEIA -- Interesting, didn't know there were rubber washers on this. Thanks. And yeah, that Don Bradley video goes over it very well.

4wdtom -- I actually had pulled the oil breather and cleaned it with some gasoline, but maybe I need to do it again.

jhncp -- Good to know about the oil pick up screen, never hear much talk about that. Thanks for the info on pan removal!

There's a separate squishy gasket material on the curve on oil pan, you could make sure bolts are tight, otherwise it's good to remove oil pan anyways to clean sludge out and clean pick up screen holding a cut milk jug with diesel and swooshed around. In order to take pan off you need to unbolt front motor mount. You can leave one bolt tight on side rail and tap it forward at angle, it's pretty easy.

Probably not but worth checking is the breather on top of the valve cover, is it plugged and causing pressure build up in the engine?

Can't help much with the radiator. The valve cover is probably a blowby leak around the rubber washer. The oil up front is either the front of the pan or front main seal. No way to fix the pan without dropping it. There is a video on Youtube on exactly how to do the pan gaskets.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
