I sold the roller it came from some time back. I think it was done in by someone used to owning a chevy instead of a porsche. Instead of replacing the oil return tube seals, they smeared some ultra copper on trying to stop the leak. The car also had an enormous amount of oil in it when I got it. It would not surprise me one bit if they filled the tank to the top.

The car was for sale a few months before I bought it by someone else, and at that time the car didn't run, but turned over fine, no strange noises. It was advertised as needing a fuel pump. A kid out bid me on the car, and after not being able to get it to run, resold it to me at a loss three months later. He had replaced the fuel pump, and claimed not to know why the engine would no longer turn over. It made a heck of a parts car!

My guess is he got it started and went for a victory lap that went all wrong
