Re: Fuel in oil - where to start?
OK...carb is off and rebuild kit is ordered from Sweden (sheesh). There was quite a bit of varnish and the main gasket was ripped.
Now that I'm into it more, I don't have a good feeling about this. I changed the oil again and the new oil I just put in came out milky and smelled like fuel after 10 minutes of running. This is an updraft carb, so a gravity leak is out. I'm now concerned it's a water leak AND a fuel leak. Head gasket? Cracked manifold or block? PO's going to get a love letter for sure...
