Also if you have an issue with header/exhaust gaskets leaking, throw away the gasket and just use Ultra Copper silicone. I have used it in place of gaskets for years, and once the bolts are tight, you dont have to worry about the paper/metal collapsing over time and allowing the nuts/bolts to loosen and creating exhaust leaks.

Jeeze, looks like a freakin permatex comercial in here. Mr. Green






daryll, would you recommend that stuff for a chevy 350 header gasket ?

I started it up today and It smoked really really bad! I have only run the motor a little over 5 minutes total. But It still smokes. Any Ideas?

I hear they make patches you can put on the tires to help curb the urge to smoke. Cool

Does it smoke at idle, accel,decel or all the time.

if its sat for a good while, the rings may be unseated from non use.

run it gingerly a couple times allowing to warm up slowly. the more it runs, the more the rings will re-seat and the smoke should clear.

otherwise there is an oil leak into the cylinder somewhere...if its white

if its black then you have a carb issue ...too much fuel.....

Well it smoke white a lot! But I had the cylinders honed and I had to get 2 new ones. 2 of the old ones were pitted. But we also put oil in the cylinders. Also we need to time it. At first it would not start then we turned the distributor and it ran really crappy. But it still runs crappy. We are going to borrow a timing gun sometime to time it. But hopefully The rings will seat soon.
