    slight smoking upon start up.....

    Wow rope, rotate the cylinder, and compressed air. Never underestimate a determined mechanic, last time I had smoke was my old 302 1979 Mustang, a valve job fixed the seals and all, it was relatively painless, but to do as you describe would have been a quick job, if ever I require seals I will...

    Possible Oil Brand Change
