Re: [DML] Re: front main seal leak

I tried this too and didn't observe any blow-by.  My car does not burn  oil 
either, or at least not excessive.  I've never actually gone 3000 miles  in a 
decent amount of time to really gauge it.  I am thinking I will just  buy a new 
timing cover and seal and get one of Grady's totally reconditioned and  
sleeved pulleys.  It will be an afternoon job!

Hello  David,

I tried the 3X5 card technique. It vibrates up and down but  stays in 
place, it does not get blow off. I hope this indicates that my  
engine is OK. There is a strong vacuum from the small hose that  
connects to the breather and if I detach the larger hose from the 
air  filter I feel a vacuum there too. I also observed oil seeping 
from the  crank shaft pulley while the engine was idling, very small 
amount. The  engine runs very well since I sorted out the Lambda 
issues, smooth idle  and good power. An engine with worn rings, valve 
guides, etc would show  other symptoms correct? Like burning  oil?
