I had some rings that wouldn't seat on a new engine. I was told that pouring a little tranny fluid in the plug holes and down the carb would help them seat. It might have helped a little... but I had bigger probs (enigne assembled wrong). Don't know why you'd want to coat your exhaust.
junkyards would do that,they called it smoking the engine.lubricate,s the top cylinder,for the long sit,some times real long. <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by mbeange: The reason for putting trans fluid down the carburator while the car is running is to prevent rusting in the exhaust.
