I have a DC and an SC. The local auto stores and local farm and home supply are always advertizing Sea Foam. How aobut some of this for the old tractors? Add it to the gas or the oil? That puzzles me. I just thought it might me a good "medic" for them as a tune up. Or will it loosen something up that I dont want to happen. (If one adds it to the oil like it says on the can, wont that dilute/thin the oil. How does this stuff work?)

I have used it for years in the gastanks of the various boats I've had. Know other boaters who use it as well. I've since migrated from boats to tractors. Recently picked up an old VAI, carb was gunked up and spewing gas out, suspect a stuck float. Anyhow dumped some SeaFoam in the gas, shazam, no more spewing gas, runs fine. I intend to do a full carb rebuild, but in a pinch this worked. I use it in my lawn equipment engines as well. Never have used it in the crankcase. I have used a small amount of Marvel Mystery oil in the crankcase if I want to thin the oil out a little for cold weather use. Mainly I just keep changing the oil religiously and use the proper viscosity for the season.

I do'nt know what type of oil you're currently using...detergent or non-detergent. I had an antique engine builder tell me once that if an engine had been run on non-detergent oil you had better NOT put anything into the engine oil to clean it up as it will loosen up the sludge and it acts like an abrasive as it goes through your engine....and will wear it out quickly!. If you want to keep a detergent oil gas engine really clean use diesel engine oil in it. The sea foam once in awhile in the gas tank is a great idea. I've used it for years in all my engines...it's great stuff...excellent for fuel injected engines too.

READ THE DIRICTIONS! I dumped a full can in the 86gmc feed truck, about 8gal. gas. We drove that thing all day, two tanks to get that truck to run right. Works OK now! gary

One capful per gallon of gasoline is about right as a top-end lubricant.

Add it to the oil and be ready to do an oil change. It will loosen a lot of dirt from the insides of an old crankcase.

My son has an old 79 Ford F 150 with a 400 in it. (crappy engine, I know) He put a can a Seafoam in it to loosen up a sticky lifter. (my big idea). Well he got'er loosened up alright... the rods are now out of it. I think Seafoam is a good product but like has been mentioned before, read the directions. And as the old saying goes...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!

Never used it in the gas or oil. I do have a spray can of it though... kinda like WD 40. It says on the can it's good for about anything.
