#1: 'O' ring in the oil filter cover

Posted on 2005-03-02 06:58:40 by newbie

Hi,

I replaced the 'O' ring in the oil filter cover (Suzuki GZ125) with a brand
new one but found the groove (holding the 'O' ring) is wider than the
thickness of the 'O' ring. This has resulted the engine oil leaks when the
bike travels. Any idea how to solve this problem?


Thanks in advance,
YC

The groove in the cover is supposed to be slightly wider, and its depth
slightly less, than the O-ring's thickness. This is so the O-ring will
seal tightly between the mating faces machined into the engine cases and
the cover, but the O-ring doesn't need to touch the sides of the groove
in order for it to seal properly.

Is there a large hollow bolt in the center of the filter cover? If so,
that bolt should also have an O-ring on it, to seal between it and the
filter cover. Lubricate the O-ring on the bolt with a little engine oil
before gently working it into the cover, to avoid damaging the O-ring.

If you have the proper sized O-rings, the only reason for a leak is:

1. Wrong or improperly assembled parts.

2. Parts are damaged (scored, scraped, gouged, etc.) or warped, usually
due to overtorquing.

Get the right O-ring. That'd be the best way to do it.

Also, make sure that the cover is tightened properly - tighten the
bolts loosely at first, in a &quot;star pattern&quot; as you bring up the torque
in several steps. If you just honk down on the first one, you'll
probably have a gap by the time you get to the last one.
