I have heard where people use to put a quart of transmission fluid in the oil pan when they changed their oil .
4 quarts of oil and a quart of transmission fluid ..
this was mostly 283 engines but have heard of this being done with the older 327 also .
If this worked then .. How come you do not see people doing it now .
Is the motors not as tough now

Was at the local garage and if what I heard was right ;; it was normal practice ..
4 quarts of oil and a quart of trans fluid. Almost what was in the service manual.... Or that is what was called for
Quote "If you took one of those motors apart it looked like new "" Unquote.

But what I thought was odd ; was they were only talking about doing this to the 283 and some of the older 327 and i did hear mention of the straight eight Buick.. But no ford or dodge motors were mentioned .

So I assumed; and you should never assume ;; this was a chev thingy
