I replaced my fuel pump for the third time (over 18 years) due to motor oil leaking out of the weep hole. I noticed the new fuel pump has a plug screwed into the weep hole. Is this a new seal system that must stay sealed? Would I be foolish to pull the plug out?

I worry fuel could leak into my motor oil or motor oil could leak into my fuel and I would not notice it soon enough to prevent bigger problems.

'I listed a surplus Watermota diesel on DieselEngineTrader. It took a few months to sell, but I was delighted as the engine was quite obscure and I never thought anyone would buy it!'

'Had a Mack 7427 in my shop for 2 years and couldn't sell it! Within a month of advertising on DieselEngineTrader.com I sold the engine to a guy in Oklahoma - was glad to get rid of it!'
