02 September 2004 . 257518.6 Km.
small drop from dipstick. 1.6 X 1.7 inch . Max diameter.
Held up against a strong light it shows about 4 bands. From outside band # 1.
1/16 inch clear. Band # 2 1/2 inch. light Grey. Band # 3 1/16 inch darker Grey.
# 4 is a bulls eye light Grey.
01 May 2004 . 256190.2 Km. Like above but showing moisture in lube. Shows
as wiggles in the bands. (Could have been coolant) ---by mid summer moisture was gone.
The clear band is a good indicator of how your engine is working.
You all know what to do with wiggles ---but hows about Kryptonite ?
If you ever see a Tobys ass --change oil. Only ones I ever saw was on Rabbits when I got them.
PO records of maintenance is a time distorted unreliable thingy --so do a blotter when you buy.
It is simple is it FREE. ----and when you get the hang of it ---it works.
I have folders and folders full of tests (ring binders) them comes from dumpsters ?
absolutely. At least 20 years experience ---- and I am still doing it , that should
tell you that either am I stupid or it really works. (or both)
So read more in archives.
PS: I see just now that I started using printer paper 13 August 2003.
