I've heard of people running ARO into their engine through the fuel tank. Is this a good idea?

No WD-40! I agree with frank, the GMK is the way to go. There is also a brand called blue block that works well too. ARO shouldn't hurt your carb in any way. The best way is to use the GMK system. I rarely use any ARO at all. Only when the engine is going to sit for more than a few weeks. With the fuel I use(odonnell) you really don't need any ARO.

I would not do that BECAUSE the 3 needles that the fuel goes through is ver small and sensitive. I just fell that doing so will allow the oil to stiffing in side the HSN causin it to lean out and become unpredictible in tuning

1. wd-40 will swell the o-rings like nothing

2. don't use marvel mystery oil if your crankshaft is filled

the only time i use WD40 is when i tear down my engine and clean it up, then after i sit the engine disassembled in fuel over night to get all the WD off and out...it's a penitrating oil and works great for cleaning.


I don't use any type of after run oil unless the motor is gonna be shelf-bound for awhile...and when that time comes I use ATF and never had a problem one on any type of crank standard, coated, or filled...but that's just me

Ironic that I start this thread right after the WD40 guy dies. Hahaha

Anyway I just bought more ARO and will be using that in both the carb and glow plug hole. Out of curiosity, what makes WD40 inferior to ARO?

+1 thats the stuff I am talking about. I didnt like putting it through the fuel inlet. I take the plug out and dump in in the hole, after I make sure its clean. Then stuff a paper towel in the glow plug hole and spin the engine on the box. I do have one question. The instrucktions say to put 5cc in the engine. That is A LOT. If I fill up the tube to 5ml and then put that much oil in the engine it is harder than hell to start next time and it smokes for a min until the oil burns off. Is 5cc necessary? I could see if the engine was going to sit for months but 5cc seems excessive.

Your best bet would be to use after run oil. You aren't fixing a squeeky door.

i was thinking the instructions said 2cc was plenty but i could have misread it. I usually pull about 5cc in and push it out to the 3cc mark then shoot the rest back in the bottle. GMK is the only way to go. The only downfall it likes to hang onto the plug and is a little hard to start.

for very short term wd40 would be ok but it does evaporate so for storage of any length after run oil all the way
