There is NO OTHER forum on the internet, that can even come close to HOTRODDERS, in knowledge from experience. Soak it up, and "enjoy the ride". We are all here to help, and advise you, with any problem you come across, with your 'ride'.

lol no problem Stephen.

I can't say THANK YOU enough for all the help that's been provided.

(Repeat test after baffle installed, for comparison). Anyways, glad it's coming along. -Jim
Yeah but she still deserves a little something for her help. Dinner and a movie maybe...

I'll fab something up to act as a temporary catch can...

I called Edelbrock's tech line two days ago and informed them of the problem I was having. I simply called to ask if they could sell me a set of baffles for the used valve covers I have. Mind you I didn't pay anything for the used valve covers. These were obtained on a parts trade...

Edelbrock's staff was so commited to helping me and this is what I got in the mail today FREE OF CHARGE !....

Pair of baffles, two grommets, 4 drive pins and 4 replacement allen plugs in a sealed bag....

Thats cool that they helped you out. Hopefully, that will fix the oil consumption.

I had a similar experience with Campbell Hausfield. I have an airless that I bought used. Been using it about 10 years. It developed a weird leak around a fitting that had a seal INSIDE. The fitting should not leak. I called and we both figured the main block had a crack inside. I asked how much, she said don't worry, i'll just send one out. I again told her the age and she sent it anyway, about a 200 dollar part! Made a believer out of me for that company!

Good deal,luis. Great that they (Edelbrock) were so gracious. Sure can't ***** about the price, that's for certain! Good luck with the rest of sorting out the issues, and keep us all posted of your findings as you progress along. Have a great weekend. -Jim

I'll bet you check those valve covers for 'baffles'

By the way, welcome

Since I haven`t read every post, I `m not sure if this has been mentioned. You can`t run synthetic oil in a new build. I already seen the results of this. it`ll smoke, burn oil and won`t break in due to the synthetics anti friction characteristics. break it in with regular oil to about 2000 miles, then go over to synthetic.

I wonder how many people here, that are lauding the customer service of Edelbrock, have purhased or are thinking of purchasing the Edelbrock knock-off intakes, etc.

How has service been on the Crosswind, etc. knock off stuff?

How can Edelbrock supply that level of customer service if they have no customers?

BUY USA when possible.

Spent this weekend working on my issues....

I added the baffles to the valve covers
Cleaned the exhaust valve
Replaced the exhaust gasket
Changed the spark plugs
Dumped the Synthetic and added Mobil 10w40 and some Mystery Oil
Also added 4 oz to the gas tank... I had about 10 gallons in there.

Started the car up and it smoked for a bit... While it was running I sprayed some carb spray down the carb and pcv hose, engine stumbled a bit...

Drove it for about 5 miles and it continued to smoke. I'm assuming it's the burning all the oil that is in my exhuast pipe and muffler....Q: How long do you guys estimate it will take to burn all that out?

I did however notice that the throttle is a bit more responsive and idle is smoother.... Not sure if this is the mystery oil in action or because of the baffle and clean exhaust valve...
