Hi I bought an 85 Z28 that has been sitting for all of 2 years , when I started it the motor is blowing oil out of the dipstick and it has bad blowbye.I think it might be receded rings as the motor was super clean before we started it.Is there a way to fix this other than a rebuild?I heard slick50 might help but I`m not sure.The motor is an L69 H.O. 305 .Thanks in advance for any help

make sure PCV valvle is clean!
and crankcase breather is not blocked.
slick 50 wont help it at all,
is the breathers are not blocked then a rebuild is in order.

Ditto on the other two posts!! These engines had a habit of plugging up the PCV vacuum port with carbon where the rubber line enters the carb/manifold fitting.

Pour a quart of good old Marvel Mystery Oil in her and drive her easy for say a couple hundred miles and see if the stuff doesn't de-sludge her as well as free up any stuck rings if there are any??

The stuff should work all through the motor and help purge stoppages/blockages...

I gotta feeling it may help you..

I used to add a quart of tranny oil to the engine for a bit and then do an oil change.. That used to clean the engine up real good
