Customer Question
I replace a 1995 5.7...
I replace a 1995 5.7 merctuiser with a Jasper engine with the same block casting number. I have only had the boat out a few times (short trips). It developed excessive blow by. It is so bad it fills the boat with white smoke. Does this sound like a problem in the heads? I'm not sure what all will cause bad blow by.

Hello. My name is***** can be caused by valve guide seals in the heads. The oil leaks down past the valve guide seals dumping oil into the combustion chamber.Have you done a compression test yet to be sure you don't a ring issue? The engine isn't over heating is it?

Not over heating. Runs good, just get a lot of smoke from the valve covers. with the oil fill cap on it will pressurize the crank and smoke will come from under the valve covers.

have not checked compression
Marine Mechanic: Tan, MerCruiser Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
That kind of blow by is from poorly seated or bad rings. How did you run the engine for break in?
