NicoDerm for Farmalls :)

Postby allenlook » Sun Apr 02, 2006 6:53 pm

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.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

John,

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