I fired up my 4000D today after replacing the piston rings. I have a terrible leak at the oil filter housing. I have successfully replaced this filter before as well as the one on my 5000D. The only difference is that I used the filter that came with my parts kit (Fram) and I have always used a NAPA 1279. The housing feels snug against the block, the gasket is flat and in place. Anybody fought this battle and won before? I tried three times; removing the housing,cleaning the gasket and surfaces and re-installing. I apparently am making the same mistake each time.

I have had to start over with those. If it passes the flat face test, try getting the screw started, then get the gasket, then the can in place with a little twist. This should get it aligned/seated without pressure. Then, holding the can firmly against the block, tighten the screw.

Check the can on a hard true flat surface. It may be warped

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
