I wanted to upload another photo. The silver canister is connected to this pump directly above it. Can oil leak from here??

It can from between the fuel pump and the block, but you look clean there.



Used parts are negotiable; they look better on your car than in my shop.

Robert - You seem to miss the point of discussion "threads". You start a topic and receive responses as well as add more of your own thoughts, observations, etc. Starting a new thread for each new thought defeats the purpose of a thread. Especially for anyone trying to search the past for information on a topic.

Thank you for the clarification. Going forward I will try to keep that in mind.

The fuel pump body has a vent on the crankcase side of the fuel pump diaphragm so if it leaks it runs out instead of filling the sump and diluting the oil. You can see the small hole just above the lever in your pic. If there is enough crankcase pressure you can get some leakage from there.
