Re: SMOKING SAMMY
Tim, you're gonna burn in hell for that mother in law remark for sure . Anyway, you would be surprised how much oil can go past the guides . Don't let it go for long, if a hunk of carbon gets loose, it can snap a valve if it gets caught between it and the guide , as they always seem to do. If you pull the head , the pistons shouldn't be able to move side to side hardly at all , if the rings are bad, you'll be able to wiggle them quite a bit since there won't be any tension . Take the exhaust manifold off, and see if the stems of the exhaust valves are caked with thick carbon....
