I bought a new battery for my project boat, hasnt ran in over 2 years.
Started right up. Throttle response was good and everything seemed to
be working fine.
However I noticed a small hose at the back of the block (bbc), with a screw and
a washer on it that was dripping oil all over the shaft. It only spits out oil
when the engine is runnning, and as it falls onto the spinning shaft it splatters everywhere.
What is it? is it a drain of some sort? or is it supposed to be sealed? not much of a mechanic so any help is appreciated.
the hose held by my middle finger...
