Hi I,ve been meaning to post this for a while but never got to it.
This will get some brain matter up & running trying to figure out why it stopped wet sumping!
This winter I put Total Seal piston rings in my 74, 850, and put the recommended valve seals on both the intake& exhaust valves as recommended by Total Seal.
I did not hone the cylinders as they looked perfect, instead I installed the rings dry, no oil except on the piston skirts.
I did a normal start up & break in. Later I noticed that even when the bike sat for a month that there is no evidence of the wet sumping that I used to have. I have not had to drain any oil from the crank case since, and there is zero oil consumption and the sparkplugs are always a light grey color.
I'm running a Lectron 40mm carb on a Drouin supercharger, Bike runs
great. So why did the wet sumping stop??
