Default pistolnut : oil smoke

oil smoke
Post by pistolnut on Apr 12, 2006, 9:21pm

I've had my 715 with the stock engine running for a couple of months now. I don't drive it much, usually just on weekends. Recently, it has started blowing oil smoke on startup. It clears out pretty quickly and doesn't seem to smoke while driving. As I understand this probably indicates that the valve seals need attention. Has anybody got any experience with this on the 230? Is this a DIY job for a shade tree mechanic? Are the parts available anywhere?
