Do you do the test with cold or hot oil?  Do you use one drop per test
or does it matter?  How long do you wait before interpreting the drop(s)
on the blotter paper? You may have mentioned it already, but where do
you find the blotter paper?  I think I like this idea and thanks for
helping with this info.


> I do regular tests  from time to time.   Then as time go by you get a feel for the condition of the oil versus status of engine. I can still send my test to the refinery lab for interpretation --for FREE.
> I shall try and post sample pictures so you have a reference on file.
> A nifty use is when you look at a used machine. PO's seem to have a time distortion field hanging around everything they say --- like  brakes were "JUST" done   engine was "JUST" overhauled  most of you have been there.   Oil was changed regularly  ??? ---you have an indicator overnight. In my case if I get a "Tobys ass"  I drain automatically  oil cost ?   5 dollars and a quarter Canadian. why hesitate ????
> Timing troubles  injector troubles ----fueling out of whack can all load the oil with soot.
> What exactly is a "Black as Tobys"    it is a very very black sample  ---very rare. So I may have to send you a Toby. There are millions of shades of black  --great thats exactly why the test works.Take any two and compare and you will understand. Two the same ? go buy a 6/49 ticket.       Maybe more later.
