    Default Bridgport posible oil leak

    I have a 'J' head from 1973. See the pic. Anyone know if this oil seepage is normal?

    Mine seeps from there...and almost everywhere else. It never bothered me, as wiping everything down is normal ops. So, if it is not good, I am in your boat too?!?

    Yes this isn't something new. I was just trying to feel it out.

    Source of oil may be from overfilling the Gits or the line is blocked. Oil seeps along the top of the head and drips at the front because the head leans downward or the mill itself is out of level and leans forward.
