Title: Which oil AGAIN..
Post by: WozzA on 06.05. 2019 01:22
No... not what you think...   I'm not asking which oil goes in what hole  *eek*
Yesterday at a car / bike show I was approached by a elderly couple & given a 1954 Mobile Manual for Motorcyclist..
The manual has a lot of great basic maintenance information & even goes into fault finding & repair of the Mag, wiring diagrams
I had never heard of the VACUUM oil company & was amazed with the verity of oils they produced.. eg SHEEP DIP  *eek*

Ah not quite Wozza, the product is used for marking sheep (called Teal in the UK) all sort now spray cans and so , but traditionally wax blocks in a harness placed on Tups to show which Ewes he had mated

Now Bill, Having NO EXPERIENCES on the subject so I'm no EXPERT on mateing with sheep, possibly our N.Z. cousins have a better idea?   ;)    *whistle*
   *eek*  BUT it does say...
Mobildip = Sheep dip
Vacmark = Sheep Branding Fluid

Quite correct Wozza,  my sincere apologies, didn't see that bit damn lazy eye (or perhaps lazy brain - hard to tell these days)
