Another Riello 40 F5 Leak

I was told my hydraulic jack was leaking. Replaced that today and my leak is still here.

Link below is a video of the leak, may want to turn the volume down a little before playing. It Looks like the leak is coming from the top of the air intake housing? But I can't find anything to confirm others with a similar issue, or a replaceable part to fix this.

Second video you can clearly see the gurgling oil.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Could be the oil pump shaft seal.

Or the line to the hydraulic jack line, or the line to the nozzle.

The fact oil is coming out the seam in the fan housing & the sound, leads me to believe you not only have an oil leak but the motor bearings are on their way out.

Is there an advantage to a hydraulic vent? I bought a used F4 burner assembly for parts and that one has a hydraulic vs mine that has a static vent.

thanks.

Yours has a hydraulic jack. I've never heard of an F4.

Sorry - typo, meant F5
Mine is static, just a fixed open window on the side of the intake.

In theory shutting the damper stops air flow thru the burner & boiler during the off ciycle & in doing so reduces heat loss up the chimney. In reality I question how much. Unless you have a really tall chimney, I would not install the damper.
