Hey everyone,

Is it normal for my 1990 Safari LXE to smoke like crazy? When I look at the plugs the mixture looks perfect. She runs great, just a lot of smoke. I did buy really cheap oil though. Perhaps the problem?

This thing will fill the garage in like. Oh i'd say a minute of idling

Couple questions.... First. How many miles to you have on the sled? Has the sled ever had a rebuild/engine work? What kind of oil are you running? I think with this info we will be able to help you more!

uh

8000 some kilometres. Not sure of a rebuild, but I'm guessing no.

All last year's gas should be through it by now.

Do a compression test on it to see what it has. Cheap oil could do it, but not sure....8000k is quite a bit....

Ok. Each side has 120PSI... I understand this is a reasonable compression... Would it be smoking because of this?

Compression is god, it won't smoke because of that. You may need to turn the oiler cable down a little, it's probably pulling the pump open too much.
