Made me think if your engine that hasn't been started for 6 years it can only help to add a little lubricant to your fuel , same as adding 2-stroke
The most non funny clown I've ever seen. He can't possibly say how his engine has improved unless he has done a before and after inspection. What is his definition of "blow by"? Past pistons or valves? The best treatment is a good hard run down the m'way. If it does not improve the only answer is a strip down. His treatment may well be depositing crap on the rings, thereby temporarily making better compression.
Did you watch the previous video Frank, the one where he starts it up after standing for 10 years or so he says?
Cheers Clive. I'll have a look. I expect you remember one big advantage to the UK when the Mway's opened. No speed limit so you could take your 30mph average daily driver out at 80 mph flat out for 10 miles to try and burn off deposits. It worked on my Mums Morriss Minor which me and a friend borrowed after dark and did this. The exhaust was like a Roman Candle. We were in hysterics of laughter.
Yep, been there...
At the time of the opening of the M5, I had just transplanted a Ford 1600E engine into my 1961 Ford Cortina Mk I estate, so I tried it out with a steady 90 mph from the Kiddy interchange A456 down to the Droitwich interchange and back, but I think the 70 mph limit was in place then.
Good old days....
I'm a big fan of the Italian tune up.I borrowed a 90s transit of some friends recently - genteel folks , not tear arses like me & the first good run out , going onto the motorway saw a fairly decent cloud of smoke from it.I'm wary of any magic cure for an engine's problems.
The old Moggies A series engine could take a bashing.
That's right Chas but not the 803 cc I was cursed with. Big ends went every 5000 miles.
Well frank I'm very tempted to buy this one, it's got a 3.9 Disco V8 engine, jaguar rear axle with LSD and inboard discs and calipers, Gaz coil springs over shocks, front end is Vauxhall Chevette with heavy duty coil springs, all professionally built, but it would probably mean giving up the Cruiser and I'm not sure if I could do that.
One other thing is it's £10000 and in Aberdeen.
