    Now they are sealing wire wheels with plastic wrap and duct tape...again. Same cycle of bizarre over and over and over

    Gee Max71 I cant find any post from you on oil pressure. You know Echlin points? Better than blue streak. Napa brand just like blue streak bought by Echlin (NAPA) 8 years ago. What your oil pressure now with stiffer spirng?

    Hey Steve - Dizzy is a Jeff rebuild. He's the one who turned me onto Blue Streak (with the lube pad). He can't get them either...

    You know I was thinking the same thing. I always used Castrol Dot 3 LMA. Then they stopped making it so I went to Castrol Dot 4 which I researched and the reports from racers said it was the same thing.

    Oddly the brake master shows clean fluid with the same.

    When I replaced the clutch master & slave I also replaced the copper line and rubber line (got a steel braided one). So its a w...
