    I'll check that later today. Thanks Pete. The dipstick tube and the quick-drain fitting are two things I haven't checked for tightness yet.

    I have noticed a decline in the leak recently. Down to 1/2 qt. in a 1.5 hour flight, and about 1/4 qt. if I keep the oil level at 5-1/2 qt.

    The gauge goes right down to the pin (below the zero mark).
    Going from four or five washers to none didn't significantly reduce the indicated pressure.

    High Oil Pressure

    My O-320 has always had oil pressure over 80 psi even on a warm day. Lately, it's up around 95 and I'm starting to worry about blowing the oil cooler.

    InReach

    Oil leak somewhere near the carb

    I thought I was losing oil from the hose sections on the oil return lines. Turns out those leaks are minor. After cleaning the lower cowling, it's obvious that the oil is leaking somewhere around the...

    I finally got a chance to fly the new Catto prop this afternoon!

    I'm not an expert on these things, but sounds a lot like a Zenair 701, even more like an 801.

    Strange Cylinder Base Bolts

    The bolts on the base of the cylinders on my old O-320B2B are for internal wrenching. The socket is not hexagonal but rather looks like it needs a Torx-type wrench.
