Re: Positive pressure in crankcase
The Sami sat around for years and may have gummed up the rings really well. We got it (1988 with 90K miles) about six months ago and have had a lot of small things go wrong. My son loves it and because of a limited budget, has only done a little work. We had a blown head gasket so did a valve job. We replaced the fuel pump, some hoses and the exhaust system. He found some big tires (30 inch I think) and now wants to put a V8 into it. Don't have the money. I think maybe if I add some Mystery Marvel Oil for a couple of thousand miles that might help. I have heard that transmission oil in the oil helps too, but not sure what that would do to the seals. Runs good, but does use oil. Any ideas short of a short block rebuild would be appreciated. Oh, we did put the hose back.
