So, after adjusting everything known to man or beast, compression testing all cylinders, running more cleaners than Walmart sells through the engine. Even made an oil catch can out of a piece of garden hose, duct tape and an empty lucas oil bottle..... I decided to pull the trigger on an engine rebuild. The blow by, dead miss at idle, bad distributor, low compression, oil leaks front and rear mains, intake and blowing out the dipstick settled it. Hated not doing it myself, but sold all of my engine pulling/rebuilding tools years ago. So Roscoe is at the local jeep shop getting his heart rebuilt. Now I'm stuck having to drive my 64 baja for some nostalgic driving till he returns.
