Hi. Thanks for asking your question! I will try and help you out.

Where exactly is the leak coming from?

Could you elaborate please?

Is it a fitting or hose?

Hi, its a 10mm steel tube that returns oil from the top of the head back to the sump, all 8 cylinders have one of these. The tube is a little loose and oil is pushing out and seeping down the outside of the bore which could cause a fire issue during grain harvest.

It looks like the tube is flared on the end to seal in the head but we're just not too sure how to attack it.

Thankyou for your help.

I see. Thanks for the information.

If it is a little loose, it would most likely need to be replaced. Being loose makes me believe is it not the exact shape it should be so it's leaking.

If you are not able to replace it. You may be able to remove it and bend it so it will see.

Let me know if you need more help.

I appreciate ur help but that's just pointing out the obvious, Im looking for a little more detail on the type of fitting and how it seals. I understand u can only do so much without looking at it so thankyou.
