Sticking Valves

Postby pup » Tue Jun 01, 2004 8:31 pm

Sometimes I have an exhaust valve that sticks. I have lubed it with everything I know of by pulling the plug out and filling the cylinder and working the valve. It runs fine most of the time but every once in a while it will take a spell and you can hear it start to miss then it will clear up and run fine. Has anyone used a lead additive for this problem.

Never tried lead substitute, but get soem Sea Foam from your local auto supply store. Not guaranteed, but it will probably help.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

You can also try a few ounces of Marvel Mystery Oil in each tank of gas.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
