I took my trail turd (Pigpen) out for its maiden voyage this weekend and had all kinds of fin getting pissed off at it. The rear main is prety much gone so it loses about 1/4 a quart of oil every 30 minutes. It idles really rough so I think it might need a new harmonic balancer, but I'm going to try to bleed the fuel lines with it running first and see where that gets me. The biggest concern I have though is the amount of smoke the engine produces. Not the smoke coming out of the exhaust, but the crank case. I know it has the little vent thing (the gold canister with a hose conneting it to the oil filler neck and two other hoses going to each side of the intake manifold. Even with that hooked up, smoke still comes out of the oil filler and the dipstick tube. I dont know what is "normal" but this seems excessive. I read in the Haynes manual that the little gold can thing is supposed to be replaced every 70k miles and I assume the one on the motor hasnt ever been replaced. I would like to check the compression of the motor but dont have access to a gauge and cant afford one, so I'm tryin to figgure out any other methods of diagnosing the problem. I am going to have to pull the motor out to replace the rear main seal anyway, so I think I'm gonna throw new gaskets in it all around.
