  2. And DON'T lay out a headland by sighting on a grazing cow on the horizon!!!!!!!! (a friend told me) Mike
  3. Whatever fluid you use, (Not going there), take a chunk of inner tube or rubber roofing material and wrap it around the shift lever like a teepee, and clamp it snug with a hose clamp. This will keep rain, melting snow, etc., from running down the shifter, and into the transmission. (worked for me) Welcome, by the way.... Mike

    Why LP?

    According to Wikipedia, LP has 91,500 btu/gal, and gasoline has 120,286 btu/gal. Roughly 24% less energy per gallon. Some of that can be recovered by running a higher compression ratio, since LP is 110 octane, compared to 87 (ish) for todays' gas. The good DR. also failed to mention that LP makes a dandy air conditioning refrigerant, in an emergency. Mike
