    Oh, well if I had bothered to read all of Lutrova's post I'd have seen where he mentioned them, hence Inspector's response about them. :facepalm:

    Whew, I was going to try and juggle both events by showing up Saturday morning and into the afternoon, hitting the Dream Parking Lot after. Was going to wash and wax the Town Car on Friday, but now...

    Yeah, I don't have any fucks to give about ZDDP after reading that blog. I remember adding some STP ZDDP additive to my '88 C3500 with it's flat tappet 454. Oh how that made me feel good, like I...

    That reminds me, the 302 HO in my life didn't use oil. Not sure about leaks in the '89 or '85, but the '88 I have does not leak.

    Right?? Lots of Motul and Redline fanboys as well. Hype is why I switched to Shell Rotella T6, it was reputed to be great stuff. People using it in their LS powered Corvettes and all that on track...

    Guess that begs the question as to what your OCI's are/were. My OCI's at the time were 3k miles/1yr. Now they're 5k/1yr, yet the 302 never makes it to 1,500 before a year so technically I don't...

    I've had three 302's in my life, so far. One '85 CFI, one '88 (My TC, still have it) and one '89 TC. All of them drank/drink oil. The '85 supposedly had 100k ish miles on it, the '89 88k miles on...

    Here's a neat list from 540 Rat, circa 2019. A bit dated, but still relevant. Can't go wrong with Mobil 1.. Before I read through his stuff, I used to think zinc content mattered and I...

    With most powder coat stuff you can get away with 350F if you extend the bake time, 325F even, in some cases.. If the part sees about 17 to 20 minutes at temperature, it's usually good. If looking...

    The "W" only matters if cold starts are a thing, so the lower the better. You primarily want to care about the number on the right. I've seen 0W-40 out there and would go for that if I still ran...

    If it gets below 0C, 10W will be thicker than cold honey. You won't want that in your crankcase as it'll essentially be running dry for several seconds at a time each time you start it. Now, I ran...

    It's my favorite. I've never really been a fan of pop & sizzle, even less so after my mid twenties waved good-bye.

    That's what I do, work on what I can and farm out the rest. Tough part is finding a competent shop.

    As for the fan clutch, you can do a quick test: With the engine idling in park and fully up to...

    My '69 Plymouth had drums on all four corners. If I remember right, every pad was bonded to the shoe and each one was detached. Guess they've got a shelf life. I do get a little leery when I get...

    Yeah, I realized I wasn't having fun with the new car when I stepped into that rag top equipped '89 LTC. Promptly sold the now late model car and got into the '85 LTD. Haven't looked back since.

    When done right and on there for awhile, the shoes tend to wear a little groove in the drum. This makes getting the drums off a bit of a challenge. Luckily,...

    Oh I won that argument a few times. What they have in common is that both vehicles get you there, the panther will just do it for less. My '89 K1500 and Firebird are that way too. New cars? I...

    It's starting to look whole again! Nice job. Although I cast my vote to have it painted with refinish grade paint or take it somewhere to have it painted. The rest of that car is just too nice. ...
