Leaking oil from drain hole under headers

I have no idea what im doing. Help.

Does anyone know what could be causing oil to leak from that little drain hole under the headers? Only leaking from #1.

Already did a new head gasket and the spark plug tube seals.

I recently replaced my headers and don't remember any holes in that area, but maybe I wasn't looking. It doesn't appear that you have other holes under the ports so I wonder... Should that be there.

I was always told that if it can't be temporarily fixed with gaffe tape and a little Loctite, it's probably beyond repair.

Maybe if you bunch up a load of toilet paper and ram it in there?

Thanks for all the help guys!


This is definitely a clean drilled hole and is supposed to be there. It's like a drain hole from the spark plugs.

Make sure when you refit the headers to add a little copper slip to the studs. Wouldn't want those to seize up!

Hello and welcome!

A better question would be, "What is that huge hole in the front of the engine at the bottom of that picture!?" It looks like a big piece of the case is broken out.

You mean that isn't a crankcase breather port?!?!

I think you can fix it by starting up the motor and putting your hand into the frontal engine hole. Feel around.

I think I wouldn't worry about that hole and concetrate on the great big hole in the cases with the rusty rod poking through it.

But hey- you go ahead and sweat the little things and ignore the big ones.....

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
