Is the MA reliable

Recommended Posts

Depends on its age. How its been maintained. Whether you live in a country where you can find parts easily.

They are a low performance, reliable engine, that will run and run providing you keep supplying water, oil and fuel on a regular basis!:thumbsup:

Their idiosyncrasies include but are not limited to:

- Leak oil around the rocker cover gaskets and half moon seals.

- Oil bypasses the valve stem seals - hence nice puffs of blue smoke if left idling too long, or sometimes just lots of blue smoke all the time!

- They do have a tendency, if left sitting in storage for long periods, to corrode and then leak from the welch (core, freeze or frost) plugs.

- Blow the head gasket between no 3 and 4 cylinder due to poor maintenance.
