    Recently did my annual oil change.
    But his time I flushed it first with LM engine flush.
    i used Brad Penn ZDDP SAE 20w-50 oil.

    i also added LM cerratec "ceramic additive for high mileage vehicles". It was expensive at $23. A bottle, but they received hundreds of high marks on Amazon
    (hopefully it will help postpone the inevitable rebuild)

    Because my filter has a less flexible inner basket weave that would not re-form well,

    i did as Randall suggested and used one mag. ring at the base of the OD plug and a magnetic plug in the gearbox.

  4. #48. DOT 5 conversion

    There are a lot of different opinions about the best way to convert to DOT 5 from DOT 3/4.
    the safest bet would of course be completely dismantle your brake system, clean & flush, then bleed in 5. (That's pretty much what all the Mfgrs. recommend). But on the BCF & several other DIY sites, a simple chase the old fluid(3/4) with the new (5) has done no harm and worked fine.

    I had been running an aftermarket muffler for the last year or so, but it didn't have that LBC rumble.
    though I'm sure my neighbors appreciated the old muffler, when Moss put the Tourist Trophy on sale in May,($approx. $260.00) I decided to switch back. (Actually my car came to me equipped with a single glass pack cherry bomb).

    i had Menike muffler shop connect to the exhaust pipe after it went thru the "box". ...
