HELP! Oil in Gas
My dad just bought a 69 camaro with a 427. It is a race only car. It has an electric fuel pump, good compression, good plugs. It has a holly carburator. The floats are set right. The engine seems to run great, but after only about 5 minutes of running it the oil smells like gasoline, and is dark grey. At first I thought maybe someone left the fuel pump on and it seeped through the needle and seat, but we changed the oil, and ran it for a while, and the same thing happened. I don't think after changing the oil there would have been enough gas left in the crankcase to make the oil change color. Could it be seeping through the rings while it is running. I would think it would be running way too rich if that were the case. I'm grasping at straws. Any ideas?
