Ah, sorry.....its an 86 XT600Z. Tenere. The tank is on the right hand side. Your asking too much for a picture....I can bearly log on ;-)
The parts in question are a ball bearing, spring and rubber washer/seat.
I,m guessing the the ball bearing is held against the rubber by the spring to prevent the oil from seeping past and out of the tank. Mabe when the engines starts the oil pump pressure overcomes the spring tension and the oil pushes the ball bearing back, allowing oil to flow past????
Sounds nice, simple and low tech but I cant see these componants on the manual..
