Still haven't done it, but before I do, would better oil help? What is the best oil?

Re: valve stem oil seal

ok, I will try that in the next day or two and come back with results, how much oil? about a table spoon or bigger? Then before I start it again, should I just turn it over without the ht leads on just to get it out of the exhaust? or just let it fire up?

Re: valve stem oil seal

I fitted the repair kit to the carb, put large jets in, seems a lot better, so it's not the carb end.

Re: valve stem oil seal

mainly on idle, but a little when pulling off, going a constant speed it doesn't seem so bad, I done a compression test on all cylinders, most were 130 - 125 psi, one was down to 115driver side near bulkhead, no idea what nuber?

valve stem oil seal

Hi.
i have a bit of smoke from the exhaust and someone said try and change the valve stem oil seals, is this a hard job to diy?
I have done quite a bit on cars, but not had the head off, if it has to come off?
Also do you need special tools?
