Re: [T3] Fw: Im Back!



Dont know what bent.. everything looks good!  yes I have to be careful with
that thing hanging down but before it I was oil starved on EVERY turn and I
dont like that... in fact I could check the oil level by making quick lane
changes on the highway.  WIth only 2.5 QT oil and no filter I think the
extra 1.5 qt is an excellent idea to dilute the contaminents and better
safety margin should something go wrong.

I guess this is one of those rare and few things I disagree with Jim on...
