No, I did not know that your engine was any different than any other internal combustion engine of the time- do you have an owner's manual- just check there- or are you talking about the tranny or transfer case or differentials?


Play it safe ! Use 'Quaker State 10/40' is all I ever use..! NO SMOKE ! - NO SWEAT ! - NO STINK !
