Loren mentioned :
Not with a 1.5 mounting plate on the engine.
I hagar agrees with Loren --- the 1.5L is a PITA compared to the 1.6L
I do not like doing my 1.5 L for that reason. But I understood Bart had a 1.6 L
if I am wrong ---Bart can sort it out---- it is more educational that way.
On the break-in issue ------ even in summer plug in the heater --and give her
snus--(when warm)-- when driving ----no FUDDY DUDDY stuff ---like I grew up with.
My gut feeling is that my pride and JOY Bunny Bondo , the rings never seated properly
cylinders are glazed. Job done by stealership.
Why do I think diesels are more difficult ? ----A: because of the lubricity of fuel.
gasser get a nice DRY fuel. Maybe we should break-in on kerosene.
Yeah ----a pickle Jar of kerosene -----just dreaming.
The risk at break-in ? a seized piston -----not good.----- So we we puts down
the money and takes the chance.
Rambling ? ------ ok ----- have fun.
PS: I liked the story about towing a trailer up the mountain passes. That should
seat them rings.
