i tried putting nicorette patches on the valve covers and it just didnt work!! heres the deal. my dads got this '56 pontiac. the car runs great with the original motor but it sat for a while before he got it. since hes had it the car smokes like a forest fire while driving and blows smoke out of the bypass off the intake when you idle at a stop. rebuild kits for poncho 287-316-370? are ~$1800 and we just dont have it right now but want to keep the car going. so we tried some of that stop smoke junk in the oil, nothing. put synthetic oil in it, nothing. tried running the oil high, tried running oil low. nothing is stopping it. so im wondering if anyone has any "magic" snake oil kinda tricks that may help. at this point it really cant hurt. we know the motors tired we are just trying to buy some time thanks!
