Need some advice!!
My new 1776cc has a remote oil cooler, a remote oil filter (HP1). I had a elephant head shear off on a recent trip. Haven't started my Thing since I found the sheared piece in my valve cover. Today I replaced the elephant head in he rocker arm and started to change the oil. Emptying the oil, I found metal shavings in the screen and in the bottom of my sump. The motor has about 300 miles on it.
