    Gapping and cleaning, that or a crisp new dollar bill also for cleaning.

    I got one for you so called old farts, before synthetic oil, how many of you added one quart of auto trans fluid to the oil when changing it ?

    I never did that, but I had the spout you would jam the sharp end onto the top of a tin quart can of oil.

    Probably illegal now... Sharp edges can KILL!

    and I still own a dwell meter

    I may have one of those spouts still. Edit: I donít anymore.


    Iíve done the atf trick before on an older dirty motor. Iíd let it run at idle for about 5 minutes before dumping the oil.

    Open the air cleaner, rev the $h!t out of it and pour tranny fluid down the carb.

    Cooter, got me beat. Working on rewiring a 61 Willys, PO swapped in a 4.3 TBI th350. Swapping in a standalone efi. They basically took a 92ish S15 and swapped everything over. ECU in the glovebox wrapped in a grocery bag.

    I may still have a spout like that. It was my dad's. Still have an old all metal flexible funnel. He used Marvel mystery oil in his 78 FLH....from a tin can.
    I learned how to use a meter on an old analog simpson meter. I miss having to zero the scale to measure resistance.
    I wont the mention the time I couldn't find the degauss button on the LCD monitor....
