I think the additives take 1 to 5 thousand miles to work.

by then the unit is sold, or the engine replaced. Ha

I have had M1 ATF in my Jeep 5.9 and it notoriously fickle 46RE trans for about 40k miles, and it seems to be holding up fine, although I am feeling like I should change it soon.

These seal additives... Anyone used them?
My GF's Range Rover has a weep from the front main, that weeps when we are on the freeway, and gives a nice burnt oil wiff when we stop...

Spare Fuel reader for my Zemco Trip Computer....
These are prone to failure over time... and NLA, so finding a new one of Ebay was pretty lucky!

Hey Key,

You are definitely revealing your British heritage here.

Many years ago, upon complaining to his mechanic that his recently serviced Landrover was STILL leaking oil, my brother was abruptly corrected and told that British engines DO NOT LEAK..... THEY WEEP! That expression is so humanizing, and conveys such a warm, fuzzy, emotional tone, that one almost feels a bit guilty for expecting too much from such a hard working little motor. We still laugh about it today.

Ironically, thats how I generally relate to mechanical things myself, at least until I have to mop up that pool of teardrops in my driveway!

Thanks. I've got a thread going here and some pictures posted in a Facebook album. I will post some pictures on this forum too when I get a chance.

Key,

To the casual observer you are doing just fine. You're clearly as much of a hotrodder at heart as any red blooded American that I know. If I ever get my rig to the West coast, I'm going to look you up. Keep up the good work; just watch out for those little details that can give you away!

Word of caution.... don't let anyone find out that you own a set of Whitworth tools, or that you like your beer warm. Which reminds me of a joke....

Q. Why DO the British drink their beer warm?

A. Lucas refrigeration.

Can you tell that I once owned an old E-Type?

I don't feel like I fit into any group really... I love them all!
Today, I helped a buddy pull the motor out of a E-Type, and did the rear brake shoes on my Jeep... Tomorrow its looking at a leaking injector on my 190D.
I am just a gear head... plain and simple!
