My boss swears by it and uses it on his boat all the time so I tried the rust buster product on "Bob" when I changed the exhaust manifold and it worked very well.

Thanks Jim,I am thinking about running it through the carb. but I was a little scared when I read how it was great in all motors,and in your oil,and your deisel,reminded me of the Old Amway products(not sure if anybody remembers that stuff).I might give it a try,run it through in a warm motor,shut it down wait 5 mins then start it back up.I am just wanting to make sure everything is good on the inside.
 
aren't there several different kinds of 'Seafoam'?

i did an overhaul on a carb and used it once. seemed to do the job but i couldn't really tell you whether or not it was 'exceptional'. definitely didn't appear to cause any harm.

hi gents, first heard about this stuff years ago from an old farmer when it was 1.99 a can he used it in everything. i do the same . use it as per instructions to clean top end add to gas as fuel stabilizer in winter stored lawn tractors,trimmers, autos, chain saws etc as far as i'm concerned it works great and replaces several different products. i guess this would qualify as an endorcment. hello to everyone in Buickland and remember any day above ground is a good day!:waving:

I tried it and it said warm the motor and then pour 1/3 of it down the carb. let it run then turn it off,wait a short while then restart.I'm not sure if it worked or not but I can tell you,do this outside.Man I layed a great smoke screen for a short while.rest in tank.

We use this stuff on a S-15 pickup at work.The little 4 cyl was clogged up from alot of short trips.Ran it through the intake,engine oil and fuel. It sure brought the little truck back to life.That was 3 yrs. ago and is still running strong.Since then I've used it in all my gas engined equipment and cars

It''s funny when I read "sefoam" in this title because that word became part of my dad's regularly used vernacular when anything Buick-related was talked about.

The very first car memory I have was my Dad's seafoam green '65 Buick Electra 225 4-dr. I'm not sure about the age (maybe between 1-2), but i remember the experience. Sitting on my dad's lap, he let me "steer" the car into the garage. As a tot, I loved activating any switch, knob, lever, button on his Buicks. They fascinated me. My Dad once laughed, and said, "I'm going to make you a board of switches and push-buttons so that you be engaged in something. Or if I were in one of cars, I had to try all the power windows/locks/AC system. Even for a 2-3 year-old then, I knew I liked these cars. Our family (of 6) took long roads trips every summer in that car.

It saddened me when my Dad sold it to a co-worker, and bought a new Ford (ugh!) station wagon. I remember that time so vividly as he wanted a Buick estate wagon with the cool retracting rear door and window (i always thought they were the best styled station wagons ever. A few Cadillac Fleetwood were made into station wagons using GM Parts/assemblies/etc.--which really looked like the antithesis of the utilitarian-look most station wagons have)

I post a pick of is that I just found (My mom and dad recently died, and my mom promised me all the pictures that had any of their cars in them--all, except for that ford wagon, were Buicks)
