Checked 429’s oil after solving antifreeze problem, the fresh oil (200 miles) stinks like gasoline.

Advise please.

Thanks,

Pat

Fuel pump diaphragm is leaking?

First place to check is the fuel pump - the diaphragm may be bad and allowing fuel to pass into the engine.  Next will be carb problems.
