I haven't looked that closely, but how hard was it to remove. I have removed/replaced tranny and stuff before in under 7 hours, how long did it take you to remove the oil canister? TIA

-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.... i replaced the small o ring on the cannister lid bolt with one that was a very tiny bit bigger 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 a second o ring grove on the cannister bolt and fitting two o rings but need to get a good look in the cannister first to place the second ring in the right place any thoughts on this ??
