Well I've exhausted all attempts to get my older Perkins
4-108 to stop with the white smoke and oil
sheen on the water
. The consensus is low compression
on the aft-most cylinder (the injector that is wet). My mechanic
says to just run the darn thing, occasionaly checking to make sure that I'm not making oil
. The smoke mostly goes away when the engine
is hot and loaded underway. All of that said, can anyone recommend an engine
oil additive for an old and ageing motor
? What about Lucas? As usual, I am indebted to anyone with an educated response.
wanting to slip the dock
next month but a little anxious about the iron Ginny!
