Moisture in oil?


Recommended Posts

We are finding signs of moisture in the oil on our current 1924 Brewster Knight project.  Is it common for Knight engines to have more combustion blow-by and therefore more moisture in the oil?   Or can the junk ring potentially leak water?

Most likely a head gasket, could be a head problem have had to recast heads for the early sleeve valve cars. Had a Stoddard Dayton Knight with aluminum heads I was able to weld.

Dave Bell ran alcohol based antifreeze in his 1929 Stearns Knight and was very quick to advise alcohol based in winter  - I always assumed a slight amount of seepage was a nature of the beast kind of thing via design or just what people had to deal with via parts availability in a later model Stearns Knights.
