    They did it for years and started before Lamson. Maybe as far back as Rick Johnson.

    Im sure its a decent oil. Its just not worth the money given its formulated like many other air cooled oils.

    Sometimes the smell can't be washed off, you just have to wear it off.

    The Mobil 1 is light yellow and when mixxed with fuel, it leaves you unsure if you added oil

    wrong thread fred. lol

    if I get a gain with 4 deg, I will grind 2 deg in the cylinder. if I get a loss, I can back up 4 deg. I will then be 2 deg more then where I started. keep in mind I do this in duration not after top dead center.

    Gotcha, I was thinking you made the slot at a 4 degree angle. I wasn’t thinking 4 degrees of crank rotation. My head came outta muh butt

    Yes, I know, when I mixed that hp2 the bottle had been siting in my house over night within 8' of wood stove. Took it outside poured it in the gas can (after the unmixed gas was in it) and it all went right to the bottom.

    I started riding snowmobiles when I was 12, used to ride up to the pump, pump in 5 gallons, then dump in the oil, shake sled side to side, and take off. On really cold days I would ride with the oil bottle in my inside jacket vest pocket to keep it warm.

    Never tried it. I’m sometimes a tad shaky with using stuff that’s ok in boats. I sorta look for strictly air cooled oils now. I’ve never heard of it


    Lucas makes some damn fine oil additives. I strongly dislike their two stroke oil
