Re: Smoky on startup
1/ I was in Leeds with my 145. Leeds has steep hills. I parked overnight on a very steep slope pointing downhill. I reversed out in the morning - over-revved by mistake as an over-reaction to the steepness of the slope - fear of rolling forward because I was on the slope
- and the 145 had a huge cloud of grey smoke from the exhaust. Wow!
2/ It never happened before and has never happened since. So this echoes the story of the horizontal pots collecting oil - while on a slope?
3/ The exhaust pipe is sooty but I'm not worried because all of the valves and guides were changed at 80k kms (16k mls) and I'm now on 200k kms (40k mls).
