For those that saw all the smoke coming from the M-T Pockets Monte Pit, I was not fogging for mosquitos or trying to impersonate James Bond. After looking over the car we found a missing plug from where a dipstick would go. The machine shop just filled it with silicone and that didnít hold. So we put a metal plug and filled it with silicone so no more smoke shows hopefully.

So, if it blew the plug out, that tells me it is building crankcase pressure. I dealt with this on my engine as well and finally fixed it right. The fix not only helped it to stop pushing oil out the breathers but also made it quit burning oil.

I'll show you next time we are together, its inconventio al but works perfectly.

Sounds good lance. Maybe we can meet up before the next race. Going to try to set up the timing control by then also
