Default About those M8 oil jets

When the sumping issue was first being discovered on this board, there was some talk about loose oil jets. And poorly designed oil jet gaskets. Haven't heard that mentioned in awhile. And never heard if it was a common issue. Was it ever a big deal? Oil jets are such simple devices its not something you would ever expect to have to address

Yet another tribute to the MoCo's esteemed quality control.

Glad they squared you away and you're running right.

I have done the factory tour 5 times, 4 to the Kansas City plant and once to the engine plant in Wisconsin and not once have I seen any body on their cell phone. In fact just the opposite, every time I have been there it looked like a very clean and well ran facility.
