Re: KPack's 1954 Panama

Had the Panama out a few times today. Lunch date with my wife along with a nice drive. Filled up with gas on the way home. Took it back out this afternoon to pick up kids from school. It has been running a bit rough at idle today, which I thought odd. I put in 8oz of Marvel Mystery Oil into the fuel tank because I have a valve or two that try to stick.

Leaving the parking lot after picking up kids, the car left a HUGE cloud of blue smoke. Massive. It was very heavy for a good hundred years or so, then tapered off. Eventually send to go away.

I've had some blue smoke on take off very occasionally, but it's normally a very small amount. Nothing like today. Obviously rings are a possibility, but could valves cause the same?
