Oil Leak 56 292

Recommended Posts

Help !!! I have a new rebuilt 292 Y block . 1956 I had it running a couple days . Then one morning when it cranked it blew ot the gasket under the oil filter plate (spin on filter). I tried new gasket,double gasket,thick gasket, all with same results. ordered new plate & bolt same results . We used the old oil filter because we did not want oil pressure to high . It was at 30 lbs but I can not get gasket to stay long enough to test oil pressure. Has any one delt with this problem before ? Any sugestions ?

This sounds like your oil pressure relief plunger is stuck in your oil pump, causing very high pressure (over 60-psi).

This is a sleeve that slides freely inside a bore, with a spring pushing against it. That's how it regulates oil pressure.

Normal oil pressure should never cause filter gasket problems. Hope this helps. - Dave
