    Help with Ski overflowing oil.

    Took the ski out again and every 5-10 minutes of riding WOT I would have to unload about a cup of oil/gas from my catch can. After 3 times of this I just took off the catch can. Engine also seemed hot. I would take off the seat and a misty white smoke would come out. I think I 'm going to empty out the engine ice/antifreeze and just put in all antifreeze. Is it ok to just use car antifreeze. After the day of riding I put the ski on the trailer and checked the oil and it was about a fingers wide over the 2nd dip on the stick. I made it through about half a tank so I hoping after a finish the first seasons tank thinks will run ok.

    Anyone know what would cause excessive oil/gas from the crankcase ?
    Overfilled oil ?
    Crankcase filled with oil?

    This is a pretty neat article about blow by
    http://www.misterfixit.com/blow-by.htm
    and some envalve thing advertised from the site to help crankcase ventilation
    http://www.misterfixit.com/envalve.htm

    It's not normal but I'm glad it's happening when I have a catch can. Hopefully after a tank or 2 of gas it will stop.

    I usually don't have but a teaspoon for the whole season. It's like if it's coming out it really comes out. Then stops for the rest of the season.

    Could this be from too much oil or is it just blow-by from the beginning of the season (first tank of gas)

    Too much oil more than likely.

    You have water in the motor. Probably even on the pistons. After sinking, it takes a while to get it out. Took numerous times pulling anthony`s plugs to get it out. Numerous,like seven at least. Pull your intake, change your plugs.
