    Thanks Neil, you're probably right - by nature I'm very reticent to fiddle around with anything not directly related to the task at hand. I'll try & explain. Let's suppose I did know that the Rad...

    My 404 came equipped with Kumhos all round (‘Power star’ I think - not near the car to check). I’ve been impressed with these, plenty of ‘feel’ wet & dry & the wear rate seems OK. My 505 is on...

    'Lanotec' is what I've been using to spray into the cavities of my Traction Avant - also did the 404 with it. Not cheap ($55 for 5 litres if I remember correctly). They sell it @Mitre10 though might...

    Interested to know how it goes Deecee. Incidentally what is the recommended 'dosage'? Or what I'm really asking I guess is would one $80 bottle be enough to do a typical gearbox, rear axle, & power...

    Only thing I'm aware brake fluid is good for (apart from in brakes) is to stop squeaking bearing of a waterpump, added at about a cupfull in a typical cooling system. My 404 started squealing from...
