Not trying to argue with the whole chrome moly thing here. Just trying to fix a messy oil problem.
We'll be checking the plugs out tonight sometime.
I have heard of guys having oil come out of the fill tube before but for the life of me I can't figure out why or how. With the bottom of the timing chain area open to the oil pan you would figure the oil would run back to the pan immediately. I have my block plugged where the fill tube would normally go and on one cold day I drove the new engine on about a 35 mile drive. I had really high oil pressure and the block was cold on start up and when I shut it off I noticed a minute amount of oil around the lip of the plug. It hasn't happened since but I know there is some pressure up at that point.

I'm interested to know how the plugs look.
