Perhaps a bad diaphragm in the mechanical fuel pump is allowing gasoline to enter the crankcase.

OK, changed the fuel pump, and the carburetor, then changed the oil, wheee, mostly gasoline came out of the crankcase!!!, that's the second time.

So, still can't drive it, just can't get the brakes to work, despite having replaced everything, master cylinder, airpack, wheel cylinders, lines, ..can't find any leaks anywhere, but loosing fluid, all the time. ( Oh where Oh where is the brake fluid going) - gremlins are steeling it during the night I guess

I get to start it up one a week,...only time will tell if the gas in the oil problem is solved.

pulled the Thermostat out, too, engine seems to run a lot cooler now,...tired of screwing with it, replacing it twice, just restricts the flow of coolant too much.
