It’s hidden behind the hydraulic pump and cannot be reached without removing the pump, or working blind. This video was shot using a USB endoscope and my phone. I had to drain the engine oil, clean the oil residue off, get it tight in it’s hole again, and then this time I have applied JB Weld, instead of silicone spray sealant. The sealant lasted nearly a year before leaking, hopefully the JB will be near to permanent as can be.
I still don’t understand why this plug isn’t threaded... I mean, WHY???
