Oil recirculating check valve replacement

  1. image.jpegAny suggestions on removal without damage. I have other posts about my excess oil issue and hopefully I'm on to something with oil in air silencer. The pics show location and after having engine tilted slightly and one check valve leaking.

Got it out, small drill and a pick. Now I just need the ice to melt on the lake. Will update with results.

After a full summer of running I can say with confidence that my oil leak was caused by the check valve.  I'm no longer leaking leaking oil . Fixed!!!
