Well, I took the plugs out of the Super A, and #1 and #2 looked really good, which they *should* for being brand new with only an hour or two of idling on them...

#3 was very sooty, and #4 was black. I put the PB B'laster into it for a night, and then put a bunch of SeaFoam into each cylinder for another night.

I buttoned it up today and give it a go... At first it was smoking *seriously* and it idled for 20 minutes putting out a LOT of smoke. This afternoon while working it hard, it cleared up almost 100%, and I'm hopeful that I can keep it that way. I put a lot of SeaFoam in the gas and a lot in the oil, and I think it needs to be run hard for a while?

Allen, I would work it hard for 2 or 3 hours, and then change the oil and see how it does with striaght oil for a while. if you have quite a bit of seafoam in gas it may cause a little smoke, but it will be white to grey.

John,

The smoke's generally white anyway, never really black, although the plugs are blackened?
