Oil on da brain

Hello Everyone
What kind of oil do you use on muffler bearings?
Where do you apply oil to left handed sprocket wrenches?
What kind of oil do you use on kunewton valves?
Should I use hypothetical or theoretical grease instead?
Oil, oil every where, driving me out of my head!!!!!!!!
:GRIN:
:chuckle:
:LOL:

You must always use frequency grease!

Gotta go, I lost my bucket of electrons.

Talking Hmmm...

Always be sure to use synthetic blinker fluid, lest the signals blink too quickly.

While you're at it, check to make sure you don't have any shorted fuses

I would suggest changing your turn signal fluid if that's the case.

I change my turn signal fluid every 3000 miles even though I use synthetic. What weight does everyone use?

SAE 0 Weight is sufficient for proper signal function, but SAE -10 Weight is better still. Anything heavier and the signals will be sluggish until proper operating temperature has been achieved.

Don't forget to change the air in your tires seasonally. Winter air is not acceptable for summer use. Also be sure to use a metric tire pressure gauge on these fine European automobiles. Perhaps European air would be beneficial as well. Hmmm...

I found this valuable tidbit of information on another discussion forum. I think I will give it a try!

The secret is ferrofluidic titration, with deposits of Carbonized Race Augmentation Particles, or CRAP, being spread throughout the line. This eases the flow of blinker and brake light fluid, increasing my fuel economy and karmachameleonic gear boost levels.

This is exactly where you would use the frequency grease.

spark gap lube for MB gassers

Is this another place where you use frequency grease, or modulation molly lube?
