fly, the orifice in question was plugged w/silicone from recent venture into clutch housing to renew driven disc facing. i have no history with this truck other than the fact that it sat un-used for 2 yrs before getting this unkemped eyesore left at my doorstep. i have not seen blue silicone for at least that many years. thanks aloris

I am not sure of your model, but could it be a velocity styled orifice with venturi effect (creates suction) inside of a boxed unit? Disassembly and a thorough cleaning and proper reassembly may solve the problem.

I believe that the oil goes back to tank whn it reaches a certain level. Just a simple pipe that leads back to the resevoir...

Sounds like you actually have a starter problem.
The starter needs to be a sealed unit. I even open up the rebuilt units, and add silicone around the solenoid locating tab to prevent leaks.
You'll also run into problems with missing/damaged seal washers on the bolt for the bendix-lever.
