I was watching "Two Guys Garage" on the weekend and they were talking about the tappet problem with regards to them f*ckin' up. They were saying that it wasn't so much that the oil was the problem as it was the "offshore" aka chinese lifters that were made cheaply. Back to you 67.

well, most chinese products are not of good quality to begin with
but, the lifters that went bad on my car were made in the U.S.A.
also, most machine shops have confirmed the zinc problem
back to you polara
haha

lucas also makes an engine break in additive with zinc in it. I'm assistant manager at a main counter napa and we sell lots of the crap to mostly the circle track drivers and ppl rebuilding older cars. i've heard good things about the stuff. alot of these guys put it in every time they change the oil.
