Default Re: gas/oil



a crankcase leak is a major biggie. It can make your motor nearly impossible to start and cause it to burn up from too lean, when you do get it running.

Pics would really help!

I suggested a dab of JBWeld as a temp fix to see if everything else is ok and it's gonna run. a smear of JBWeld ain't gonna hurt nothing! and it may plug the hole for a bit.

If there is a case mismatch, or defunct gasket problem, the only permanent fix will be a complete teardown. Is W prepared for such a task?

I'll admit again, I'm a real hack!
Smear a blob of JBWeld on it and see if you can get some miles out of it!
and I'd just as soon buy a complete lower end, or even another complete motor and go through the Alf proceedure for new chinagirl engines while riding around a bit on one that could very possibly expire. At the bottom of the barrel it is never a bad idea to have back-ups ! :-)

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!

Goretex is permeable and a terrible gasket substitue.

Take the engine apart, and use some gasket sealer, or better yet, make/buy a new gasket.

I doubt Permatex will do the job, they make so many product applications, some can hold up to fuel, and some that don't, just might. Wait and see.

Which bottom bolt, the right or left?
