    TR2/3/3A Re: How long should an SU damper top up last?

    I've been using Marv's mystery oil for some time with no ill effects. When I run out of that
    will probably go to ATF fluid. Mainly because that's what I got laying around in the garage.

    Another secret to consider is if you clean or replace the timing chain; put it in oil

    What's everyone's favorite oil for their SU's ?
    I've been using some leftover marv's mystery oil.
    Before that had some chain saw lube.
    Have a good weekend watching F1 !
