(particularly 2 cycle engines):
GIBBS puts a "Top Oil" Lubricant in engines. Valve stems, stuck rings, poor seats and low compression benefit from
this capability. GIBBS combusts as a high octane racing fuel, taking the carbon and blockages in the cylinders and burning them off - and out of the picture.
The Two Cycle Problem:
If you have a regular two cycle engine that won’t start, when you spray regular, off the shelf starting fluid into it and start it, you
jave just washed away all of its lubrication. When it finally begins to run, it will rev up to as much as 5,000 RPMs - with NO LUBRICATION!!! This will cause
scoring, seizing and blown engine cylinders, especially on outboard boat motors.
THE SOLUTION: Blast GIBBS into the carburetor and start the engine. GIBBS
works to lube all the bearings and cylinder walls as well as being a high octane ignitor. It can even be used in conjunction with regular starting fluid!
In the picture above, the engine (a Fairbanks-Morse Z-D, which was stuck and would not start) was loosened with GIBBS, then Started with GIBBS. As you an
see, it is shown here RUNNING on GIBBS! The carburetor was MISSING from the engine, and the internal governor was broken - the engine is running away, racing at 5 times it's rated speed of 600 RPM!
Stuck engines - frozen up from non-use:
Spray GIBBS on the spark plugs, then remove after several minutes. Give just a 2-4
second spray of GIBBS into the each cylinder and screw the plugs in by hand, several turns - just enough to close up the hole. DO NOT FILL THE CYLINDERS
ALL THE WAY UP WITH GIBBS!! THIS IS A WASTE OF GIBBS - just an ounce or so at a time is all that's needed. Repeat for each cylinder. Then let the engine stand
for approximately 24 hours. Then put starting fluid and a small amount of gas into each cylinder and the carb. Start it up!
HINTS - To manually break the engine free you can wrap a strap or chain around
the crank pulley and lock it to a length of pipe or bar. Be SURE to mark the block and the pulley with a line so that you can see your progress. Be sure to pull out the
spark plugs, to avoid compression resistance. As an alternative, make an air line fitting for the spark plug socket. Connect it to compressed air of 100 lbs or more.
