Default answer this question! i need to know asap

the cover that has the dipstick hole in it in a d16y8, whats it called?

its located behind the harmonic balancer at the bottom the block, right above the oil pan.

on my built motor there is a gap between the oil pan and this piece, and it has no hole for dipstick (aka its a p.o.s. aftermarket part) so i need to replace it but i cant find the name of it anywhere


is it number 9 on this list, it doesnt look the same in the drawing because i see no hole hwere a dipstick would be inserted, but its in the right spot?? frusterating! lol

stupid thing

see the 2nd hole on the left side? thats where the dipstick goes, my oil pump doesnt have that, and see that little U bend at the bottom in the middle? between that and the oil pan is a 1/8" gap! NEVER EVER EVER EVER buy a melling oil pump for you d16

OK, im an idiot, after some extensive research i think i realized that the guy who built my motor replaced the factory oil pump with an aftermarket hunk of crap, it has a huge gap between the bottom of the U and no dipstick hole... great for me.. another $170 out the door, but for a good high quality one


final question, the oil pump sits outside the block, directly between the harmonic balancer and on top of the oil pan....

if im correct than i solved my own problem, but can someone please tell me if im right..
