  1. I recently acquired an RTV1140 that was considered "inoperable'. The vehicle starts right up and drives in all gears (in 2 wh & 4 wh), but has blue smoke from the exhaust and is spitting out black oil through the exhaust manifold flange right above the starter. I suspect between the manifold/exhaust pipe gasket. Removed the exhaust manifold and saw there was oil in the exhaust port on cylinders 1 and 3. Needs new front axle bearings. Not sure if I need to split the wet brake housing inorder to have access to the bearings. Correct procedure for the bearing replacement? Best guess as to the oil in the exhaust, Injectors, valves, rings? I've not checked compression yet. There's no water in the oil or oil in the radiator. When I changed the motor oil, I only got like 2 quarts out of it. There is a dash indicator that stays on once it's started. It's a round circle with some small lines around the circumference. Not sure what it indicates.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated
