Can Oil Additive FIX This WATER FILLED Antique Scissor Lift Engine?

  Shikime 75,705


Muaj më parë

This antique Up-Right scissor lift has been through a lot. It lives it's life sitting abandoned for years and then does a couple small jobs before heading right back outside to sit. It's powered by an old air cooled Wisconsin 2 cylinder engine that was seized in the last video we made about it. I wanted to change the oil and clean it up a bit before it head back out of the shop so it was a perfect time to test another oil additive out in the real world.

Gunked up carb or configured incorrectly combined with a powerful electric fuel pump making the fuel go into the crankcase instead of the cylinders would be my guess with some condensation water.

You need a carburetor overhaul. It should not put gas into the oil pan.

Love the scissor lift, just needs some gentle love - a good cleaning, going over, a rebuild. But the price was right. Think of it like the $500 Porsche - except not as fun to drive.

Carb is dumping fuel into the cylinders and ending up in the crankcase. Check the float, needle and seat.

did you check the air filter? water will usually get in through the wing nut on the air filter... synthetic in a air cooled engine?? 15w40 diesel oil is much better for flat tappet engines that need zink in the oil.. valve adjustment would help with it being lean on one and rich on the other.. those old wisconsin thd engines are tanks!

All the smoke was from the old oil. It was so over filled with water and gas that it started to push the oil on to the top of the piston. The reason for no smoke after the oil change was it had the right oil level.

I'd run 10w30 HDEO or straight 30 or 15w40 in an air cooled engine most passenger car rated 10w30 is fairly thin for grade and probably not the best thing to run in an air cooled engine.

You should pull the motor out of it before you send it away if it’s getting scraped that engine is in decent shape still.

Compression has to do with metal expanding. The rings are still warm from running. Better ring contact better compression

if there is gas in the oil, prob the water got in the tank and together with the gas in the oil.

They do make drain plug replacements to make oil changes like this less messy. You can attach a hose then and make it drain where you like. I realize this isn't your machine so oh well.

I think the oil looked like milk shake because of the carb is leaking fuel into the engine.. it’s always good practice just to rebuild the carb on old small engines.

Any engine that does not get run often, will have condensation in the crank case. My two least seldom used forklifts are always like this. I have replaced head gaskets on both due to valve spring issues (flat heads) I switched to straight weight oil (non detergent) which has helped tremendously. Multi weight oil with detergents capture and hold moisture and rely on sustained operating temperature to burn it off.

Compressor test reading depends on engine speed. Remove both spark plugs before testing.

Other comments are correct. Electric fuel pump is too strong. It's pushing raw fuel past the float and it's leaking down into the crankcase.

Compression needs to be at full throttle to be accurate and if you are goign to change the oil and add additive before sending it out for no real reason, why not clean the carb as well since its obviously not getting enough fuel.

I wonder if some of that re-seal oil additive could be added to the hydraulic fluid to possibly reduce the leaking of the hydraulic cylinders..You'd have to operate them up and down quite a few times to get the additive into the hydraulic seals. Couldn't hurt.

Did you do initial compression while it was hot? Engine parts seat better and make a better seal when hot.

The oil was probably really thin from the water and gas causing it to go past the rings and burn.

Your carburetor/fuel system is all sorts of screwed up. And I'm guessing you left it outside for water to get into the oil. It should be kept inside, like any vehicle when possible. Also, I'd think it a good idea to keep the lift. You're going to need it for 100 things you're not aware of right now. And when you need it, you'll regret getting rid of it. You can fix the high pressure oil seals for the lift mechanism.

Get a length of NPT pipe to install into all your small engines oil drain ports.... Even at home improvement stores your can get NPT in the correct size and then in 2, 3, 4, 6 or 8 inch length, what ever length you need to get the drain out to a convenient spot to get a pan under..... You Use some pipe dope and snug the pipe up tighter than you would the cap you use, this allows you to remove the cap in the future without loosening the pipe
