    Default Ford 3600

    An embarrassing question to have to ask but here goes. I bought an older ford diesel 3600. It is probably about a pint or more low on oil. The dip stick and oil filter is on the left side of the motor but I have looked everywhere I know to look and don't know where the oil cap is located to pour in more oil. The top of the valve cover has a vent pipe in it but not cap. any help will be appreciated.

    if a true 3600 the oil filler cap is located on the timing cover right in front of the injection pump if a 3000 it is locate on top of the valve cover

    Yep, right side, just at the front of the motor.

    Found a pic for you, open this page, then enlarge the fourth photo. (last pic) The oil cap is red.

    Thanks for the help. I had found that cap but looked like the injection pump was fastened to the side of where the oil would go in and i was afraid that might not be it. This cap on mine has a little handle that unscrews from the top of that cap and there is a rubber seal under the cap. Appears to be in the very same location as the red cap your post was showing

    That would be it. I just thought the picture would help, since that filler cap was painted red. (maybe the owner couldn't find his either)
