    Zerk Fittings Cleaning

    Back in the 1950's when I was hanging out at the neighborhood gas station learning how to change oil and grease cars if we ran across a zerk that would not accept grease we would heat it with a propane torch until it would accept grease. Granted the hardened grease that caused the blockage got pushed downstream but the logic was it is better to have a small amount of hardened grease than no grease at all.

    Dirty Oil!

    I agree it is your money and do with it however it makes you feel good. But I am still waiting on a report of a failed cam and failed lifters due to no zinc additive in a Mopar flathead engine. As I have said many times you can feed your dog food on the bare floor or in a diamond studded food bowl. The dog don't care but if it makes the owner happy to buy the diamond studded dog food bowl then by all means do so. Same with zinc additives. The car don't care but if it makes the owner happy by all means buy it.

    Deleted thread regarding aftermarket parts quality...

    I agree that would be good if it worked as it should. Ebay has such a system. Twenty years ago the ebay rating system worked well. However these days I see that several venders can somehow erase any bad reports and that allows them to maintain 100% positive ratings.

    I am a bit late but here is the link to the Veterans Day thread I started 10 years ago. If you like we could ask a moderator to combine these threads.
