Default Re: Cluster F**k

sorry, the oil level is not rising, put too much in when I changed oil a month ago. I didn't think much of it at the time. 2 or 3 quarts too much is supposed to be BAD. The model is that the crank now dips into the oil in the pan and churms it up. Oil get so foamy that it doesn't pump well, bearings dry out. when my engine went downhill so fast I wondered if this happened to me. No one who has listened to the engine can hear any lower end issues

The carb was dumping too much fuel intot he manifold. the power pump was shot and leaking. Carb is rebuilt now.

Somehow cylinders 2 & 4 are not firing consistently except to pop once in a while back up through the carb suggesting pre detonation
