Which oil AGAIN..
« 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*

The biggest lie I tell myself is
"I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it"

eg SHEEP DIP

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
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

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