1)LBC Engine Trouble:
My friend rebuilt the engine in his 1974 MGB this summer, and he is having a
problem with excessive oil consumption at sustained engine speeds above 3000
The engine seems to run well; it makes good power and all cylinders fire evenly.
All of the original emission control equipment was removed by a previous owner--
could the missing PCV / Gulp valve be causing some problems?
2)LJC Engine Trouble:
I have a 1986 Mazda RX-7 exquiped with the normally aspirated 13b rotary engine
which I have owned since 1989. This car has about 107,000 km on it and has been
serviced regularly. While driving at about 60 km/h it developed a miss. I
it into the local dealership and they at first thought that the problem was a
igniter coil (no spark). They then told me I had lost all compression in the
rotor, possibly due to a bad apex seal. Is this sort of sudden failure common?
The engine had good compression in both rotors when it was serviced this
