On the Pennzoil issue. Yrs ago around 72,I got started working on fuel cars.Everyone used Pennzoil,and I noticed that when the oil came out of the engine,it looked like baby you know what when it came out in the drain pan.Also the #3 and #4 Main had to be changed every pass. Now this was when we still had iron blocks with forged cranks,but I noticed that another racer used Valvoline and never had the pan off.the oil looked like oil coming out. I queried him and he said didnt have any probs with mains,unless he got his tune off of course.Now the weights were 60 pennzoil,70 Valvoline.I got 12 qts and put em in and the mains looked gd the next pass.this was with the old pennsylvania based crude.Convinced me!
