I don't like any of that stuff..I know people that flushed their motor's,And burnt them up.Remember all the gunk in the motor will end up in your pan,Then you know where it will be next,On the screen on the pick up.Then there goes your oil pressure.You will be doing it right,By dropping the pan.In my book,That the only way to do it.I'm sorry,I don't believe in a mechanic in the can.. :nono: Good luck with what ever you do.. :thumbup:

X2 what New Interiors said. I used that stuff once in a 351 Cleveland, (it was Wynns motor flush), followed the instructions and wound up turning the bearings into flakes in the bottom of the pan.
Another friend of mine used it in a 352 that someone had used STP for years,it busted loose some crap that wound up in the oil pump..The crud locked up the pump, and twisted the oil pump drive shaft up..it looked like a piece of licorice. :(
Luckily he shut it down when the oil light came on.

Leave a sleeping dog lie, that's what I'd do.

Later, mikey
