    Took nearly 9 hours in total to get out, stranded lorry caused the motorway to stop, which then froze over. Then the highways land rover causing a roadblock for the gritters at the front set alight. The same happened last night too, (really!) with people being trapped over night there. -7 with no heat even with the engine idling, been feeling cold all day today aha. Decided to work from home today.. :)

    Cracking run, was fun playing with a couple of the hudd minis on the way home! Mini was spitting flames out on over run, smelt fuel at work yesterday, got a bloody hairline crack in the tank and emptied itself in the boot floor.. >_< typical eh

    Bk450 it is, hoping its just the gaskets thats gone, bizarre as it was leaking oil not compression aha

    I would check the blanking rivet in the head for leakage as well while you have the head off

When the woman at Shell tells you it's illegal to put oil into petrol - no love that's Castrol Valvemaster.. lol

    Ahaha yes, she genuinely confused me, pointed to my bottle so at first I thought she thought id filled a 250ml bottle up with petrol lol, but then valvemaster is orange, not clear like petrol. She clearly didnt have a clue aha, total BS. Deffo confused her when I mentioned that my valves are too big for unleaded seats.. haha

    Not really any downsides to putting one in, do you have much oil coming through the breathers now?

    Can't say i've noticed much oil through the pipes, currently got both breathers plumbed into the carb, but wondering if a can is a better solution for the engines health?
    Jun 22 2017 06:53 AM
  • timmy850's Photo
    timmy850
    It'll only help if you're getting oil through the breathers and into the engine. You could try one and see if you're getting any oil trapped?
