I had the same leaving the Jokinens at I think it was 3F on Sunday. Got better after 5+ min of run time. It had been fine as low as -5F earlier while driving, so the overflow going back to the tank makes a big difference.

I've got a little smoke going right now; 2 grey bottles ready to go into the tank at the next 2 fillups.

Commando engine smoke pulled...

1 of the 2 you picked up already sold...
The one I have left is a Buick odd fire (not a real dauntless)
I’m going to make a 226/t176 conversion package with spare units I have and warehouse..

I have a feeling this is package worth keeping for something in the future...

Mercedes had 0-1 psi fuel pressure on gauge most of the way to work yesterday. Got a strong dose of Power Service white bottle and it slowly improved. Got lucky!

I am still thinking about this unit.. let me know when you think you will be getting the title.  Sara's lease is up at the end of Feb so we are looking for a replacement and a 4wd unit is definite.

This thing is a solid unit, small, nimble, decent power, but almost no fun in the snow...

Can't shut off the ESC unless in 4WD so no donuts, power slides, or drifting in 2WD >:( . Prob have to pull the ABS fuse.

On a more positive note, the wife kinda likes it. When the 'Burb has outlived it's usefulness, it may be time to downsize...

Hitch looks like it'll work well. Need to build out a box, the stringers are a few inches further apart than I was hoping for.

Hopefully I can get a hand on that from smike at some point. Cut out the old, weld in the new!

it's fun rereading this thread.

need to unbuild part of this box for maintenance almost 5 years later. Hard to believe I've had this thing for almost 5 years. If it weren't for the pre-broken axle shaft, and the poor factory tank venting, this thread would be much shorter.

Early pics before the CM bed rusted to shit make me a little sad. I'm looking at cheap aluminum toolboxes right now. Think I'll pull the trigger and try to get at least 2 on before CA. Should be a day or two of work to mount all.

 Hello Arie:
Hope your vacation was nice and WARM!!
Back to reality....
Your 225 Buick is all apart. Looks great inside.
Look up and see what you can get for 1st oversize pistons and rings.
Crankshaft looks good and will take standard size bearings.
Usual parts: Camshaft, lifters, timing set, cam bearings and soft pug kit as well as gaskets.
Believe it or not the timing cover/oil pump even looks good.
Get a oil pick up tube please.
This looks like a well cared for engine. good find.
Let me know what you can find.
