Engine ran without oil, seized! Can it be saved?

  • Published on: 22 May 2017
  • Engine operated without oil "locked up/seized". Is there anything than can be done to get the engine running again? In this video, I attempt to get this engine running again.

    I use to use marvel mystery oil to remove carbon from engine. I poured about a 1/4 cup water in carberstor and than add about the same amount of mystery oil to revolt the valves and piston did this with engine running, good product, but with the cylinder scared nothing can help accept resleving engine and changing piston, connector rod, crank bearings.

    I know it's expensive -- but for the learning process I'd try full synthetic oil an see how it held up!

    There was not normal, but, i worked in a shop of garden machines, and we repair ONE chainsaw seized, (less than your engine) the metod is sandpaper wet whit oil&fuel mixture of 2t engine, after mare than one hour fingering the engine (jajjajjaj xd) the seize disapear totally at touch. Next we put a used piston, and the machine runs aparently perfect, probably whith less power but for a really cheap job, who care? Usually seize means, new full kit

    question: could you use jb weld to fill in the "very deep cut" at 1:58? I saw your video using jb weld to repair a different part of the engine, now could we try this?

    I have my 2 stroke moped (50cc) and previous owner had oil in the “self lubritating oil tank “ ( it just adds oil to carburetor instead to a gas tank)and the pump stopped working for him and he never told me and one day I was driving happily , I got home and I told myself “ I’ll go to a gas station for some gas and then it wasn’t starting (it wasn’t stiff at all) so I checked carburetor if it wasn’t clogged up or gas tank if it wasn’t clogged up I checked everything but I didn’t check Two things ... piston and the cylinder wall... I was hopeless so I towed it to my friend and he told me that the piston and the piston ring are completely crushed (also the cylinder wall , so I’m hoping that I would get these parts for good prize and I’ll get the scooter going again ☺️

    I have brought back small engines that seized completely up while running. However this is an example of why it's not always gonna work. But the steps he used where solid.

    I forgot how chill these older videos were, feels like the newer videos pound you with a lot of loud talking - not moaning, but I like this more chill style more.

    Testing the product claims is useful to us all, it is not wasteful.I did not watch the bacon fat etc videos, as they serve no purpose.I think your channel and testing procedures are the best on you tube.Thanks for your effort.
