Glenn, I always recommend putting a pint of SeaFoam in the oil when
bringing an old engine to life - it immeadiately cleans everything -
rocker arms, hydrolic lifters, valve stems etc. within one minute you
can hear the difference in the engine - noise stops and it smooths out -
amazing stuff. SeaFoam is make here in Minnesota. And, the best part is
you don't have to change the oil - it stays in! Dave
