The original subject was "Re: TO35 throttlegovernor linkage adjustment".

Governor seems to work ok as far as resistance at higher rpm. At mid range rpm the tractor hunts. It speeds up and slows down over and over again until you are idling.

At any rate, I changed the oil to 15w40 and it smokes so bad you canít really drive it. Oil pressure did not change. Still running 20psi at all rpm ranges. I mean CLOUDS of blue smoke pouring out of the tail pipe. Cylinders are absolutely soaked with oil. Thatís why it has a miss Iím certain. It canít possibly run right with wet oil soaked plugs. Kind of a shame. I donít think the oil problem is going to go away but as I said, you canít use the tractor with that much smoke. Looks like a brush fire. Hahahaha.

Any chance there is some other issue with valves that would cause smoke like that and clear eventually? Everyone swears it never smoked but I think the guy that sold it to my old man knew it and thatís why he dumped it.

Are you positive it is not over full? I think it hold 6 quarts with an empty filter.

I don't see the valve guides being a problem. They are not known for leaking oil, and the oil to the rockers is metered, very little oil goes up there.

Have you tried removing the air cleaner hose? Possibly the air cleaner has too much oil and is over flowing into the carb.

Is the crankcase breather tube open?

I just changed the oil. It has 5 quarts in it right now. Air cleaner oil level is at the line or just less and the hose to cleaner is open.

I just canít wrap my head around a cylinder having rings so bad that 40w oil blows past, pools, and still has enough compression to run. That makes no sense to me.

I recently brought an 8N back to life after sitting a very long time. I soaked all cylinders with a can of SeaFoam and wound up saturating the manifold from what blew into the exhaust system or leaked past the valves. I fired it off and it smoked for 30/40 minutes while it came to temp and burned off the manifold and exhaust pipe.
You ran it how long?

Iíve run it maybe half an hour total so far. With so much oil on the top of the pistons, which has rislone in it, perhaps the rings will free up after a few uses and time. Weíll see. I may try the sea foam thing. I have some in the shop I think.

I have my new gauges installed. Unfortunately the oil gauge is pretty much a green mid section with red on the edges.

More unfortunately is that the pressure is in the red for ďlowĒ.
