Tiger Tim: if you've been diluting even 50/50 mix with even a quart of plain water you will NOT be protected to -10F. I did that and checked mine and it was "up" to +5F!! Better drain it quick unless your garage holds heat well.

Re: A trick to stop an oil leak on the hogs head

Or...is this an "optical illusion" given the angle, and it appears to be totally closed? I keep looking. That said, would oil still

Re: A trick to stop an oil leak on the hogs head

Wait a minute...what am I missing here? From the pic, I see what appears to be a totally enclosed cap, JB welded to the hogshead, keeping things tight and clean. So now how do you adjust the low band? What am I missing?

Lest we forget, today is Flag Day! Thought it was appropriate to get a picture of Clarabelle in front of Old Glory before we head out to join 5 other club cars for a nice "lunch tour". About an hours drive to get to one of our favorite restaurants under absolutely perfect skies and temps.
