Mechanics

I JUST BOUGHT A 59 FAIRLANE GALAXIE THAT HAS BEEN SITTING IN A BARN FOR 20 + YEARS. ITS BLOWING BLUE SMOKE . COULD THAT BE FROM SITTING ?

1961 Ford 500 • 48,000 miles

I changed out the fuel system as well as rebuilt the carb. I took off the valve covers and it had crusty oil deposits. I wanted to know if I should changs the rings or will it eventually burn off. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Have you changed the oil? My gess is it will smoke. Valve guides are probable very dried out or just gone. Change the oil use a good 20w50 oil and drive it see how it is
