Hey i Found Something about temporary ring fixing, to stop oil burning and smoke!

http://www.howtoadvice.com/StopBurningOil

Theres the site, check it out and tell me if you think it will work regardless i'll probably try it cuz it's cheap and if it works then hooray i don't have to rebuild it. but it sounds awsome and if it works thats great. Anyone tried something like that and had it work or tried and had it not work??? just want to know, thanks guys!

My instructor in college always said "if you ever find a mechanic in a can, you`d better let him out"
when parts are worn out, there is no fix other than to replace or repair them, however, most of the article did give me a good laugh.

uhhh, Ok.....

Doc here:

Well, after reading that story, The man's Choice of mechanic is at best somewhat dubious...Missed the rings on a compression test, since they went out a few days later...if he did one at all?...and Who the heck runs an inverter for 100k worth of miles at idle? I mean I like camping like the next guy...but..

And, Jeeze.... this stuff must be good....It cleans oil fouled plugs...all by itself..

Sign me up! I got some ivy I need to kill on my fence-line....

LoL

Look at it this way, how many times have you super-glued worn metal parts together that were in constant use, In a heated environment, and how long did it last..? You'll have your answer....

Doc

I've been in the business almost 40 years and I've heard all about these miracle cures(?). My favorite is one that they used in older engines, baking soda. That's right,baking soda. Pull your plugs and put a teaspoon in each cylinder and start it up, the B.S. laps the rings and cylinders so you have a good seal again....right. Unlike the solution he mentioned it also controls tartar build up,LOL.

OMG.....Everybody has tried all that crap..It does'nt work..You know how many mechanics would be out of buisness if a can could fix your problem.I had an 83 caprice wagon , a 3 hour tour would cost me 2 quarts of oil, not to mention all the "Shelf ****t" I've put in.This thing smoked like a Hippy at a Greatful dead show----much!

Do us a favor and let us know how it works out. I tend to be a bit more suspicious like everyone else. I remember one that had little pellets you put in your cylinders, they were suppose to seal worn rings. I guess I never liked the thought of those pellets bouncing around in there until they melted or went into fission or whatever they were suppose to do.

GEEZ, I wish I'd heard about this sooner!! We just spent 24K in getting a new head/block surfacing machine and valve refacer. Now I guess we can sell all of our shop equipment and get a HUGE stock of Alemite instead. I'm getting too old to run a boring bar, balancer, etc., anyway! And I can quit taking those pesky ASE certification tests, too!

How are the currents this time of year so I can calculate where the land will be when I get there?

Too bad, but that stuff is for campers with inverters that have idled the equivalent of 100k miles only...I saw it in the disclamer on the bottle.

A friend of mine said the pellet stuff worked for a few thousand miles on an engine he saw back in the '60s, but when they finally did take it apart, the pistons could not be reused because the rings were stuck so tight they could not be removed.

"Restore" does almost the same thing and lasts about as long. Does it work? Yes...but not for long, you will soon become a constant customer of the additive MFG and once you start paying for additives every month an engine rebuild looks cheap.

It works but doesn't pay.
