Bone Doc, you are correct. My bad. What I was trying to express is that a piss-ant amount seemed to make a bit of difference, which surprised me. Some on here say put in a quart and its good to go....

And it is.....what?

Over the last few years I've learned a lot of the HD Forum, even after 45+ years of riding. So educate me -- many of you have emphasized that pulling a trailer is no problem, if its properly loaded....

Food for Thought

I suggest you spend a little time thinking about where you want to end up - just get it running; get it running great & reliable but maintain the patina; restore it. From the pics and your story it...

Smart Shoppers
