That gunk is usually caused by a combination of blowback and poor servicing. Poor servicing also means that a lot of that crap was circulating through the motor. Both these indicate that your bearings and rings are stuffed. what was your compression and what oil pressure do you have with what oil.ZLandrum said:why would you think the motor is knackered? I didn't machine the heads, but got them done at a local shop for $185.00.. the bottom of the motor seemed to be holding great compression. It's running really well, i just need to find the temperature sensor, and plug it back up before i can really drive it around.
As previously indicated, I think your motor has excessive blowback. This can force air (and oil) out the dipstick if it is really bad.ZLandrum said:Soo... i got everything hooked up right, and making sure everything's good to go. When i tried to crank it i was getting "CLUMK! CLUMK!" so i took off the starter again, and felt the flywheel with my fingers, and i think maybe one of the teeth is chipped - so i put the starter back in again and tried turning it over, got a couple of CLUMK!s and was going to just give it up when it turned it over... so with it running i was under the hood checking everything to make sure all is good when after it warmed up to medium i noticed some sort of liquid coming out of the dip stick.... and burning on the exhaust manifold... i turned it off and am letting it sit, i'll give it yet another oil change later and try it again, and when i change the oil i'll look for water too. Any ideas as to what may be the problem??? i just re-did all of the heads and pretty much everything associated with them, besides the actual block... please any help is appreciated, more than you know!!
