I'm replacing a damaged oil injection check valve on my mach z. To do so I will obviously be removing the small oil line that runs from the oil pump to the check valve (which threads into case and injects oil into crankcase). Will I need to bleed the line once it is attached to the replaced check valve? My understanding is that the bleeding is only necessary between the oil tank and the oil pump.
The piston broke up pretty bad and beat up the tip of the check valve. It probably still works but it should protrude into the case about 1/8" inch but it is currently flush with the case. For $18 I'd rather just replace it and forget about it.
Where I sled: Frederic to Lake Gogebic & everywhere in between
You can hold the pump leaver wide open until hell freezes over and it will not bleed the tank to pump. Holding it wide open to get the oil from the pump to the engine will however.
There is a small hex head bolt in the middle of the pump, loosen it with the engine off until all air is expelled, re-tighten.
