Re: What do you make of this

Altho I have never had a problem with MAC's, I don't usually use them either. But I find that they usually have things that other venders don't carry.

Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

That washer is the old seal retainer. You did good as it is no longer needed with the tube.

Sometimes the sector shaft leaks also. You can install this kit to stop (or slow down, depending how...

Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

The tube is an easy install and you can use your existing light switch parts. You are just swapping out the end plate. I use Penrite as well but have heard good thing about Corn Head grease.

Re: Engine Oil Analysis

When I 'lost' my rear main bearing there was very little 'evidence' in the oil I drained or full flow oil filter when I cut it open. All the pieces were nested in the oil dipper tray... :eek:

Re: White crap in carb bowl - Pic

Looks like you may be getting water in your gas, causing corrosion. I use Sea Foam in my gas to absorb any 'moisture'.

I can honestly say I have never heard that before, that "Town Car" was slang for a Town Sedan. I guess you really DO learn something new every day... :p:p

Re: Marvel's Mystery Oil

Marvel Mystery Oil is NOT banned in California. If it was, Amazon and other retailers would not be able to ship it here. Amazon will not let you complete an order for something that is banned here.
