Recommended Posts

Well not really, I did take it apart and here's what I found after @ 1800 miles or 95 hrs. on the original top end.

I know I went too long, but thought it looked good for that amount of time. No signs of deto, no stress fractures in the piston, no signs of excessive wear, no marks in the cylinder and no carbon build on the powervalve. Some blowby for sure but they are the original rings. When I brought it home with @ 6hrs on her, she only pumped out 165 psi on my gauge, before I tore into her, she still managed 155. What do you guys think, see something I'm missing?

No I've never used castor. 95% of the time was on Mobil-1 racing 2t, mixed with pump premium at 32:1. Aiir filtering was an equal amount of time between either No-toil or Bel-ray filter oils and Twin-air filters.
