    New to this list, I'm a 356 guy, needs help with a 2.2 911

    No#6 cyl fills with oil if the car sits for a week or so. Daily driving it is fine, good power no smoke, but park it for a week or two, oil drops form on the #6 exhaust studs, and it smokes like a fiat for 2-3 minutes, Then it clears up and runs fine.

    It did this for a few months last year, compression and leak down were OK. But tons of smoke. So we pulled and rebuilt the motor, with new PC, rebuilt the heads, went together fine, good compression, leak down etc back to the Rabbit it was built to be.

    Let it sit for a week, pull the #6 plug crank it and it sprays oil out the plug hole, expels probably close to an Oz. Oil is clean like the tank. The other cylinders are dry.

    Somehow, oil is gravity draining from the tank and ending up in #6 Cyl. It's almost like the stuck carb float filling a cylinder with gas, but I have not gotten a hydraulic lock.

    Anyone seen this before.
