-well lads i have just striped my cannister off the block cleaned it with carb cleaner opened the two valves cleaned then as best i could put it all back togeather and it was still poor
so i tryed this.... t replaced the small o ring on the cannister lid bolt with one that was a very small bit biger and hey presto!!!!! its fine now oil light out in a flash try it before you by a new cannister i think the area around the seating for this o ring may be damaged so the bigger o ring has helped am thinking of making asecond o ring grove on the cannister bolt and fitting two o rings bot need to get a good look in the cannister first to place the second ring in the right place any thoughts on this ??
