Power Punch???

Recommended Posts

Bunky
I have a 725 that runs ok but smokes I met a gentleman the other day that told me a bout a product called "Power Punch" he said that it might help the smoking and oil consumption.. I don't usually like to use additives but I would be willing to try it in this as I want to rebuild an original engine and put back in it.... Has anyone used "power punch"????

Never heard of it. Do you add it too the oil or mix it in the gas as a carbon remover/softener? I'd say if the engines is in bad shape you don't have much to lose, who knows, might turn out to be a good one like SeaFoam did.

Isn't seafoam a carb cleaner type stuff??I think Bunky is talking about a oil additive...From what little research I have done on Power Punch it sounds to me like its the same stuff as Motor Honey..From what I gather its just the Manufacture of alot of the additive products...

Never have read the intended use or claims for Seafoam. I started using it about 3 years ago when the kid in the local NAPA store was telling me he runs it in his snow-gos and four wheelers to solve carb dry out problems during the off season. As he lives for his snow-gos, figured it was worth a try and it has made a lot of difference on my 4 tractors.

If your engine has been smoking for a while, my gut feeling is that the rings are beyond saving and by adding an oil additive, you are hoping to add some material back. I don't think it will happen. Best do a compression check. If you are 60 PSI or below, either the valves need help or do the rings. The bad part is repairing one side will really aggrevate the other.
