Lately I have been had to wear a mask while out alone on WECATCHEM. The blow by smell is so bad you can taste it. Forget that the Boatress complains that her cloths smell like engine!
After googling around and talking to folks, Boat Buzz, forums. They all say the same stuff. Rings and yada yada. For the record if you google a headache, it’s says cancer. Why does everything have to go to some extreme. Seems like we live in that time for sure. Here is a short clip to see the smoke.

Now, I did some think’n. 6th grade engineering think’n. And thought. mmmmm, I haven’t changed this oil in a while. I wonder? I mean it smells like used oil. So. Then I got to think’n some more. It’s possible that the oil has broken down and lost some of its viscosity. Hold on.. I need to take a break. That was a deep word I had to drag out of my brain.
Anyway. I changed the oil. Some drama huh? And guess what? Really it’s in the headline of the story! You need to guess? It fixed it. BIG TIME! No smell, no oil all over the deck near the breather. Just rumble rumble. Funny thing. Machines of a certain age, do not adapt to modern standards. They smell, they putter, they need a kick in the ass every now and then, and coil change very often. New spark plugs help as well. They really do.
So if you are about to rebuild your engine because of Oil Blow by, change the oil first and try It.
